Networking with The Tri-County Literacy Council – Now Offering Twitter & Facebook Courses – Cornwall Ontario – May 8, 2010

Cornwall ON – Tri-County Literacy Council has offered basic computer instruction to the residents of S.D. & G. since 1986.  A cap of 6 students per session means that students learn in a relaxed environment and receive the individual attention they often need.

Over the years the agency has offered a drop-in program for persons who cannot commit to a specific time and who may have very specific questions or learning needs.  Other programs have included PowerPoint for those who may wish for example to make presentations on a large viewing screen, Excel for those who for example want to keep a better set of budgeting records and Mavis Beacon for those who simply want to learn to type or to increase their existing speed.

More recently Tri-County Literacy Council received additional funding from the Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities to improve its computer services for both students and practitioners.  As a result, the agency updated its lab with new computers and software and now it can offer some exciting new programs.

Come join the agency as it offers a program on basic computers from the absolute beginner or those with some knowledge.  If you’ve heard about Facebook and Twitter and wonder what all the excitement is about, now you too can learn how these social networking tools can be used in multiple ways in the new Social Networking program offered by TCLC.  Of course, you can still drop in with your specific needs like attaching something to an email or uploading pictures to the computer or you may wish to join the Web Design course if you are keen about designing a website for your family or small business.  Finally, you have the opportunity to visit Tri-County Literacy every other Wednesday to participate in a “Feature Presentation”.  These are mini courses designed to give the very basics in today’s technology like running a digital camera, setting up a Social Networking account, shopping on Kijiji or E-Bay, etc.

Each of these courses is offered on a different day and at a different time.  Seating is limited so call Tri-County Literacy at 613-932-7161 now to register.
