This 3-day course is being taught starting Monday May 9th (see the Schedule for all dates and times). We had more demand than available computers for the March class so have removed Excel Online and replaced it with this course. This class will be just 3 days and will not include exploring the Internet which was the 4th day.
Are you a senior or know someone who is struggling with technology in general and computers in particular? Absolutely no prior computer experience is necessary for this course but it goes into the concepts deeply enough that even with some experience you are going to learn a lot. We start with basic computer skills (day 1), learn how to work with Windows (day 2) and move on to Windows skills, including file organization (day 3). This course is based on Windows 7. There is a separate Windows 10 update course (keep reading).
But wait, you say you have a Windows 8 (or 8.1) or Windows 10 computer, you don’t understand the tiles and really need help in using it. Windows 10 is a free upgrade (until July 29, 2016) from Windows 7, 8 and 8.1. Windows 10 is what Windows 8 should have been and is well worth the time to upgrade to it. The Windows 10 update to the Intro to Computers (Windows 7) course is scheduled for starting May 16th. It is a flex class in that it is scheduled for 5 days with the 5th day as needed. This is a BYOD (bring your own device) class – your own laptop or Windows tablet PC running Windows 10. If your computer is not a laptop or tablet or you still have Windows 7 or 8/8.1 but are getting a new computer, you can come anyway and sit beside someone who has a Windows 10 PC. The first day (May 16th) is devoted to upgrading Windows 7 and 8/8.1 computers to Windows 10. If your computer is already running Windows 10, do not sign up for this first day.
