Thanks to Department of Commerce and
Economic Opportunity’s Eliminate the Digital Divide Program, Spoon River
College is able to offer our technology classes at no charge to those ages 50
and over. Class sizes are small, and taught at an unhurried pace.
Students can complete all three classes and receive a certificate of
completion. The courses offered through the program are:
COMPUTER SKILLS FOR THE NOVICE - This class
teaches computer basics such as using the mouse and starting up/shutting down
the computer. Students learn how a computer is organized, how to create files
and folders, and gain tips that will make them less hesitant about technology.
FINDING INFORMATION ON THE INTERNET - The Internet
is full of resources, but where to start? Students will learn how to search to
find the information they need online.
EMAILING MADE EASY - Staying in
touch with family and friends is important and using email is the key. This
class teaches students how to create a new email account or gain tips on how to
use an existing one. Students learn how to compose, send, reply, and forward
email at a slow, comfortable pace.
