Computer Classes for Senior Citizens (60+)
We introduce and teach a wide variety of computer concepts in our six classes: Basic Computer, Computer 2, Intermediate, Word 3, Spreadsheets 1, and Spreadsheets 2.
Where Should You Start?
It is important that everyone begins with the Basic class since it provides the foundation for the other classes that we offer.
If you don’t know about it, you won’t use it. You will learn basic and advanced computer concepts for personal use. We use projects to give our participants a big bag of computer tools that they can use to accomplish computer tasks of their own.
What Kinds Of Things Will I Learn?
- Setting up folders for file management,
- Creating, saving & printing documents,
- Spell & Grammar check,
- Searching on Internet,
- E-mail skills,
- Clip Art,
- Wallpaper & Screensavers,
- Labels & Envelopes,
- And much more!
When Are The Classes?
Our classes meet for 1½ hours a week for eleven weeks. We offer both morning and afternoon classes. We have four sessions a year - Winter, Spring, Summer and Fall.
What Is The Cost Of Classes?
The classes are free. It is necessary for each participant to have a portable storage device called a flash drive. You can bring your own or we have them available for $5.00. This is a one-time expense regardless of how many classes you take.
What Other Activities Are Available In The Computer Room?
In addition to classes, we have Free Cell and Jigzone puzzle competitions once a month from January through June, Christmas workshops, Facebook lab, and a work-at-your-own-pace keyboarding curriculum.
Frustrated With Your Computer?
Our wonderful volunteers encourage and provide individual assistance, keeping frustration at a minimum and creating a fun learning environment.
