Free technology workshop at WSCC

From local reports

Do you want to feel more comfortable using a computer? Improve your skills for free at Washington State Community College’s Technology Workshop, on Jan. 7, 8, and 9 from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. The Technology Workshop is being held at the Center for Student Success at the Washington State Community Campus (WSCC) campus.

For those who have been out of school for a while or have little experience with computers, the Technology Workshop helps teach needed skills in the following areas: Microsoft Word, browsing the web, and saving computer documents.

Have you ever had any of the following questions:

Which type of device stores the most information – a CD rom, computer hard drive, floppy disk, or thumb drive?

How do you open multiple web pages within a single window? How does that make surfing the web easier?

How do you open a program, such as Microsoft Word, when there’s no icon on the screen?

How do you save a document on a public computer?

The Technology Workshop can help you understand and answer those questions and more.

According to Center Director David Scheimann, participants will learn useful computer terminology; navigate Word and other Microsoft Office programs; access and use WSCC’s email, web advisor, and online learning system; as well as send documents electronically.

The free Technology Workshop is Monday, Jan. 7, through Wednesday, Jan. 9, from 3 p.m. to 5 p.m. at the Center for Student Success, on the first floor of the Arts & Sciences Center on the WSCC campus at 710 Colegate Drive in Marietta.
