Senior Outreach Studies offers Computer Classes


MARCH 4, 2005--The UW-River Falls office of outreach and graduate studies is offering a new series of introductory computer courses starting Monday, April 4, for members of Senior Outreach Studies and their spouses.

Classes will teach the basics of computers to beginners and are held April 4, 11, 18 and 25 from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. in the Yellow Computer Lab in the basement of Chalmer Davee Library at UW-RF. Free parking is usually available along Cascade Avenue.

Because the courses are free and space is limited, registration for each class is required. To register or to become a member of SOS, call Diane Ballard at 715/425-3261.

Courses are:
April 4 - "Buying a Computer." This course is a basic introduction to computer equipment and terminology. Whether you are buying a new or used computer, know what you want the computer to do for you and how much you are willing to spend.

April 11 - "Ask a Computer Geek." Do you have questions about your home computer? Want to know more about your email? Want to copy something off the Internet, but don't know how? Bring your questions to this class.

April 18 - "Basic Computer Skills for First Time Users." Never touched a computer? Learn how to turn the computer on and use a mouse. Explore the Internet and be introduced to various software such as Microsoft Word and Powerpoint.

April 25 - "Everything You Ever Wanted to Know about eBAY." What's all the hoopla about eBay? Tour the eBay Web site while the instructor shows you the ins and outs of shopping and selling on eBay.
