Hands-On Computer Workshops


Learning Center Schedule - February 2014

Learning Center Schedule - March 2014

Central Library Workshops
Computer Club For Beginners
  • Beginners workshops are comfortably paced for the novice computer user. Students learn how to use the mouse and keyboard, navigate through Microsoft Windows, search the Internet, and set up and use Email.
Advancing on the Internet
  • This set of workshops builds on the Library's long-running "Computer Club for Beginners" class. To take this class, you should have a good understanding of how to use a personal computer, the basics of Microsoft Windows, and how to do a basic search on the Internet. If you've taken our "Computer Club for Beginners," you are ready for this class. Among other skills, we will explore how search engines can be used to find Internet-based information of all kinds, and we'll explore in detail advanced searching using Google's specialized features. We will also spend time exploring the Library's extensive suite of digital information resources, learning how to search within commercial and special databases. One of the exciting features of the class will be information "treasure hunts," low-keyed searches through cyberspace for fun information. We will also discuss streaming and downloading of information, accessing the Cloud, and current information on Internet service providers and online safety.
Computer Workshops in Armenian
The Library, Arts & Culture Department is happy to announce that, due to the demand of many non-English-speaking Armenians, it once again offers computer workshop in Armenian. The workshop, which is free to the public, is designed for beginners and will be held in the library's Learning Center computer room. Students learn the basics, such as: how to use computers, how to set up a free email account, and how to search on the Internet. Additionally, they learn how to use and search the Library, Arts & Culture Department's website. The workshop includes a PowerPoint slide presentation in Armenian. Students receive a free booklet in Armenian, “Ի՞նչպէս գործածել համակարգիչը”, written by Elizabeth Grigorian especially for the workshop.
