Along with Fitness, Social, and Arts & Crafts activities, Lennox & Addington’s Seniors Outreach Services also offers the Educational activities shown below.

Basic Computer Skills

Thursdays at 10:00 am – 11:30 am
Instructor: Doug Harris
Cost: $40 for the series

This course will cover the most common uses of a computer. Participants will learn to identify the hardware components of your computer and how operating systems (Windows, Apple, Lennox) and related programs interface with them. Throughout the series, participants learn how to start working with computers and build confidence in their ability to use them for practical-everyday applications. Some examples are, formatting letters and corresponding envelope addresses, making spreadsheets for budgets and creative skills for brochures, pamphlets and flyers.
The program will be taught in a classroom setting over a period of 8 weeks for “Basics 1.” Each class will be 1 hour and 30 minutes on site at L&A Seniors Outreach Services, in the “Activities Room.”
