Introduction to Computers and the Internet Tutorials November 8, 2007

Posted by ctcoberon in Uncategorized.

So, you’re new to computers or you have just purchased a new Windows Vista system and you need a little help. This is where the CTC can assist! On Tuesday and Wednesday afternoons each week (except for public holidays) the CTC has classes for beginners conducted by Maree Arrow (Tuesdays) and Julie Stott (Wednesdays). Both ladies have a gentle approach when comes to helping people understand the basics of computing and the Internet. Importantly, you will work at your own pace, there are will be no time limits set on long it should take you to learn. In addition, if you would like to revise all that you have learnt up to a certain point, you can and it will be entirely up to you to tell us, when you feel confident about what you have learnt, before moving on. Overall, Maree and Julie conduct their respective classes in a manner that is enjoyable, as well as being informative.

Now, if you are thinking about joining Maree or Julie on a Tuesday or a Wednesday afternoons and you would like to see what we can provide why not pop-in to the CTC located at 48 Ross Street (corner Edit Road) any day of the week (Sunday to Monday between 10am to 4pm) and ask to see the CTC Training Room and view for yourself our comfortable surroundings. Or better still, why not come in on a Tuesday or a Wednesday afternoon and have a chat with Maree or Julie or sit-in on one of their classes. Cost of attending any of our weekly classes is just $5/2hours, which includes afternoon tea. Besides conducting their weekly computer classes, both Maree and Julie can also provide focused one-on-one training, price and times to be negotiated.

To promote the on-going activities conducted at the Oberon Community Technology Centre (CTC), we have again started to distribute around town (at selected centres) our new CTC brochure which outlines all the classes, services and programs we provide, keep a lookout or next time you’re in at the CTC, ask for a copy!

Tip: Holding-down the Ctrl-key on the keyboard while rolling the wheel on your mouse backwards and forwards when browsing the Internet will increase or decrease the size of the display including text and doing the same on the desktop of a Windows Vista computer will increase or decrease the size of all the icons. (Sometimes with Windows Vista you may need to left click a vacant part of the desktop using the mouse to deactivate any program icons before applying this tip).
