The Community College of Vermont (CCV) has developed a short training course for improving your ability to work with computer novices. For more events see the Common Good Vermont Calendar.
Basic computer skills have become an assumed part of daily life. If you’re reading this post, you’ve got those basic computer skills. Yet for many people even opening an e-mail account can be daunting. Increasingly, individuals unarmed with computer skills struggle to access the vital services, information, communications and more that are moving online.
A computer screen shouldn’t be a barrier to participating in the modern world. An ability to help beginners through tasks like filling out a form or navigating a website is now an essential part of customer service for businesses and organizations. And this skill is part of how we all can help family members, friends and neighbors cross the digital divide. The Community College of Vermont (CCV) has developed a short training course for improving your ability to work with computer novices.
This workshop can help you:
• Walk beginners through specific online tasks
• Highlight core Internet skills
