A while back, I sent out a survey to the community find out if there was interest in Hyattville for a few basic Computer courses, and here are the classes that got the most votes, along with their presentation schedules:
March 10 - Course 1: MS Office Tips (Word, Excel, Powerpoint – the Big 3). Most of these tips can also be applied to Google Docs or Open Office – Word, so don’t hesitate to join in this class if you don’t have Microsoft Office. Other document options (Google or Apache's free version of Word, Powerpoint, Excel)
March 17 - Course 2: Storing information on "the Cloud", and Accessing your information from any device (home computer, tablet, phone)
March 24 - Course 3: Mobile Device Basics (smart phones, tablets, iPads)
March 31 - Course 4: Introduction to Social Media (Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc): The importance of "owning" your own name on these platforms
April 7 - Course 5: Overview of the variety of internet browsers (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox, Safari) and Safe Practices for using the Internet
Each class will take place in the Hyattville Community Center Library at 6:00 pm.
Course cost is $5.00 and Handouts will be provided.
The library has open wi-fi that all are welcome to use for the training.
What to bring: You do not have to bring a computer along to attend. If you have a desktop computer at home, you can still attend and receive the tip sheets, and try what you have learned at home.
Please RSVP if you plan on attending so that we know how many settings and printouts to provide.
