Beginners Wanted

by Kathy Winkenwerder bonnie

Have you always wanted to learn to use a computer? Did a friend or family member give you a computer that’s gathering dust because you haven’t figured out how to use it?
If you’re ready to learn what a computer can do for you, OLLI off ers both PC and Mac beginning computer classes. They are taught by instructors who not only know
how computers work, but who have experience teaching others how to use them. You’ll have a chance in class to practice what the instructor shows you how to do, with class coaches there to help you every step of the way. And on Fridays the computer lab, staff ed by instructors or coaches, will be open most of the day if you want more time to practice.
Richard Sherwood, who will be teaching COMPUTER 101 for PCs, is a new instructor in the computer lab. He has worked with PCs since they were introduced, and recently retired from IBM, where he conducted classes and training sessions. In Computer 101, new PC users will become familiar with the computer, learn to use the mouse, send and receive email and search for all kinds of things on the Web.
IT’S YOUR MAC, DO WHAT YOU WANT TO DO is the beginning class for
Mac computer users. Bonnie Elsten, who has conducted a wide range of Mac
classes in the computer lab for seven years, teaches IT’S YOUR MAC. Her students will explore the applications that come with the Mac, as well as learn how to use email, browse the Web and write and save documents.
If you’re a computer beginner, you can get started by looking at
the class descriptions in the schedule, picking a class and registering.
Hope to see you in the lab soon!
