Course on “Using the Internet” for older adults

WoodGreen Community Services will offer, on an ongoing basis, a computer course at their offices at 815 Danforth Ave. (between Pape and Donlands subway stations), 3d floor. The objective is to make mature adults more comfortable using their computer and the Internet. The course will consist of 15 sessions, meeting once a week for three hours, 9:30 am to 12:30 pm, with 1.5 hours lecture and 1.5 hours hands-on lab. Both parts of the course will be instructor-led. The complete course is $20, and it will be offered at various start dates in the coming months. Click for a more detailed description of course content (pdf).
