This course teaches general computing skills through the medium of managing pictures. Subjects include filing, backing up and 'syncing' your pictures across various devices as well as sharing pictures with friends and family and searching for and saving pictures from the Internet.
All courses are taught at a gentle pace and there is no pressure or exam at the end. There is always time to ask questions or go over things again.
Our courses are run roughly in correspondence to school terms. Whatever your experience, even if you have never used computers before, we will help you find the course that is right for you.
We can also run courses out in the community for organisations who support older people. If you have a venue with wifi and at least 8 older people wanting to participate please get in touch on the number below.
