Computers for Absolute Beginners

This class is designed for those who have very little computer experience. We will show you how to cut/paste/print and more. By the end of this three hour class, you will be able to use your computer to get on the internet, store your files and pictures so that you can find them, and have a general idea about downloading programs, music and photographs. This class is not designed for in-depth involvement in any specific computer programs. Instead, you will acquire the tools that allow you to understand how to open new programs and files.
