Courses for Seniors
Introduction to Computers & Email
Free* for Seniors 60+
WHO IS THIS WORKSHOP FOR?
Not everyone had the opportunity to grow up with computers and email. This workshop is for people who have never really used a computer before, and might find them a little scary. It’s about teaching you that computers aren’t terrifying or to be avoided, but an incredibly useful tool for communicating, shopping, getting information and entertaining yourself. Email is one of the fundamental internet technologies, a tool used by nearly every person with an internet connection. It allows you to –at no cost – send a letter of unlimited length to one person, or many people at once. It arrives almost instantly, and they can reply straight away. Setting up your own email account will allow you to communicate with people you know in ways you never thought possible
WHAT YOU’LL NEED
An internet-connected laptop; feel free to bring your own, but we will have laptops available for everyone!
WHAT YOU'LL LEARN
In these workshops we will walk you first through the basics of what a computer is, what its components are and how it’s operated. We’ll teach you how to use a mouse and keyboard. Then we’ll put those skills to good use to create your first document on the computer, and perhaps do a little web surfing along the way. We will also cover the basic steps you need to help keep in touch with your family and friends using email. You will learn how to set up an email account, how to send an email, and how to read and reply to emails that have been sent to you.
