NUI Galway’s free Click and Connect introduction to computer classes will resume again on the week beginning 26th of January.

The classes run for two hours once a week, over a four week period, providing eight hours of training in total.

The classes are aimed at those with little or no computer experience and cover topis such as introduction to the Internet, online shopping and booking tickets, setting up and managing email, and using the computer in conjuction with a digital camera.

In addition to the Click and Connect programme, there will be a slightly more advanced Second Steps programme available to new and past learners. This programme is aimed at those who have some computer experience or previously completed the Click and Connect programme and are seeking more computer knowledge.

As many of the participants have little to no computer experience, the classes are run in a relaxed, fun environment, which gives confidence to the new learners. Student volunteers will be on hand to provide one-to-one support to the learners in the classes. Each class is small with a maximum of twelve people and each learner is given a supporting booklet with instructions so that they can continue to develop their skills at home.

Everyone who completes the course will receive a certificate of attendance. These free computer classes have provided training to over 600 people since the classes began.
