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.
