IT for Complete Beginners

A dashing group of 35 to over 55's began an IT for Complete Beginners course in Dundalk IT last Thursday. Guided by 16 tutors, who are giving their time voluntarily, over the next 5 weeks these "mature students" will be introduced to the basic components of PCs, logging on to and using the internet, setting themselves up with email acounts and getting the hang of word processing and speadsheets. The programme is part of the fight against digital exclusion in our society and is supported and co-ordinated by Age Action Ireland with assistance from Dundalk IT staff. Most of all though it's great fun for all!
