Week-long Subject-Specific Classes
We offer targeted educational programs for small groups:
Teaching basic word processing, using a spreadsheet program to create a budget, and introducing presentation software helps beginners with limited computer experience gain confidence and prepare for the job market. Requires intensive 2-week commitment, 5 hours a day.
Shorter programs (1 week) cover word processing and excel, a 2-day weekend workshop in excel or word also possible.
An introduction to the basics of image editing with layers (using GIMP) requires 1 week. A weekend workshop limits students to basic cropping, sizing and color correction. Not a class for beginners.
A computer basics program that is excellent for beginners covers directory structure, file formats and details, using peripherals, accessing external drives, shortcut keys and customizing desktop icons. This class really needs a minimum of 3 days.
