Free computer literacy series slated for April 17, 24 and 31

Friday, April 11, 2014

A free adult computer literacy class, designed for parents and grandparents, is scheduled for three Thursday evenings during April.

Classes are scheduled for 6:30-8 p.m. Thursday, April 17, 24 and 31 as "a digital literacy program generally designed for older folks, parents and grandparents," according to Bob Hershberger, DePauw University faculty director for the Community Technology Enhancement Program (CTEP).

Hershberger said the workshop is designed to allow "older folks to finally understand the language your kids are speaking."

The program will be conducted at the Bob Bottoms Community Center at 705 Crown St. in Greencastle's South End.

The workshops will be conducted by CTEP staff and students in the DPU computer science classes.

Free and open to the public, the workshop will focus on such topics as:

-- Email and web browsing.

-- Word processing, including Power Point.

-- Security issues, including ID theft, viruses and spyware.

Besides all that, the workshops will address other issues the attendees might be struggling with.

Those attending are asked to email to indicate their attendance.

For more information, persons may call Hershberger at 720-9461.
