The University of Victoria’s Computer Science Department is inviting the public to attend a series of free courses to help gain confidence about the digital world.
The sessions are aimed at older adults with little or no prior experience with computers. Adults interested in learning about devices or websites are 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; and more.
The sessions 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.
The sessions will be held from 10 to 11 a.m. on Jan. 23, Feb. 13, March 5 and April 2 in the Engineering and Computer Science building, room ECS 258 and ECS 250. Please enter through the north entrance, facing away from Ring Road.
If you would like to volunteer, please contact Robert at firstname.lastname@example.org. More information about the sessions are posted at csc.uvic.ca/Outreach/csvp.htm.
