UVic offers free tech course for seniors

Anyone interested in learning about technology devices or websites is welcome

After a successful round of sessions this summer, the University of Victoria’s computer science department is once again inviting seniors to take part in a series of courses exploring the digital world.

Anyone interested in learning about technology 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 and more.

Participants will learn about digital privacy and steps to take to stay secure in the increasingly interconnected world.

A short question period will conclude each session, time-permitting. Suggestions for future content is welcome.

No prior computer experience is required.

The sessions will be held on Saturday Sept. 26, Oct. 3, Nov. 7 and Dec. 5 in the Engineering and Computer Science building, room ECS 258. (Enter through the north entrance, facing away from Ring Road.)

Register by emailing cscao@uvic.ca or phoning 250-472-5854.

More information about the sessions is posted at csc.uvic.ca/Outreach/csvp.htm. Those who would like to volunteer are invited to email Robert at rklee@uvic.ca.
