What is SeniorNet?
Many older people feel that they may have been left behind by technology in this computer age. SeniorNet offers a way for you to "catch up" and take advantage of new skills.
Communication with family and friends by email is becoming the norm these days.
SeniorNet therefore aims to teach computer skills to the older person over the age of 55 years in an enjoyable and friendly way.
As part of the SeniorNet philosophy of "peer teaching", members are tutored by other computer
literate members in courses that range from basic introduction to computers, to programmes
such as word processing, databases, spreadsheets, email and the internet.
More advanced courses are also held such as Desktop Publishing, Image Manipulation,
Scanning and Digital Cameras. Learning in a non-threatening environment, in small groups,
through "peer tutoring" and at a modest cost, is the focus of SeniorNet.
We cater for users of Windows XP, Windows VISTA, Windows 7 and Apple-Mac computers.
