Core Computer Skills is a three-part series designed to teach participants the essential skills they need to use a computer to create a word processing document, search the Web, and use e-mail.
Part One focuses on the physical skills users need to use the mouse and keyboard as well as a basic orientation to the computer equipment and operating system. In Part Two, users will receive an introduction to two essential programs: a Web browser (used for navigating the Internet), and a word processor (used to create letters, resumes, and more). In Part Three, users will be introduced to email, an essential tool for communication and for using the Internet to search for jobs, shop, and use social media.
Participants are encouraged to bring their own laptops; however, library laptops are available for use by those without their own.
Drop-In Tech Help sessions are for people who have questions about using their laptops, tablets, smartphones, or e-book readers. People who have specific questions about devices such as iPhones, iPads, Android tablets, Android phones, Windows phones, Windows tablets, Nooks, Kindles, or laptops are encouraged to drop in with their devices and their questions.
People with questions about the many digital services and resources the library offers are also encouraged to attend Drop-In Tech Help.
