After a successful round of sessions over the summer, the University of Victoria’s computer science department will continue the program and invite seniors to attend another series of free courses about the digital world.

Anyone interested in learning about devices or websites is welcome to attend. The sessions will cover Google and search engines, email, Facebook, Twitter and the concept of social media, Microsoft Word and digital productivity, iPads, iPhones and other mobile devices.

It will describe digital privacy and outline steps to take to stay secure in the increasingly interconnected world. There will be a short question period at the end of each session, if time permits. Feel free to bring suggestions for future content. No prior computer experience is required.

The sessions will be held on Sept. 26, Oct. 3, Nov. 7 and Dec. 5 in the Engineering and Computer Science building, room ECS 258. Please enter through the north entrance, facing away from Ring Road. Please register to attend by emailing cscao@uvic.ca or phoning 250-472-5854.
