Tuesdays, September 27th, October 4th, 11th, 18th / 1:00 – 2:30 pm
Windows 10 is the newest version of Microsoft OS. Windows 7 and 8.1 users were given the opportunity to upgrade their systems to Windows 10 for free during the first year of release beginning July 29, 2015. The Computer Activities Program offers a new style of lesson we call “workshop”.
Workshops run BYOD style so students may bring their personal, Windows 10 laptop computers to sessions. An instructor will lead the workshop by demonstrating the key steps of operation on projection screen. Students will follow along on their computers while volunteer assistants help you perform lesson exercises. The Computer Lab also provides free and secured wireless internet access to registered members of the program for use during each session.
