SeniorNet sets its fall program
The SeniorNet Fall 2010 program is about to get under way at Heritage Center, located in the Redding Community Center.
Registration is open for popular courses such as Introduction to Digital Cameras, Introduction to Word Processing and Introduction to Excel. A course in photography editing, Photoshop Elements, will also be offered, as well as a new course for new photographers, Creative Photography.
The goal of SeniorNet's courses is to help students learn to use computers, cameras and other digital electronic devices for personal benefit and pleasure. All courses are designed to be enjoyable and "user friendly." Every student in a computer class has the sole use of a PC for classroom instruction. Computer classes are limited to five students and feature hands-on activities on Windows based PCs.
Redding's SeniorNet courses are open to all adults. SeniorNet also offers non computer classes introducing students to digital cameras.
The fees for the SeniorNet courses are kept low to encourage as many participants as possible. Participation in a course requires a fee plus minimal costs for materials (printed study guides). Courses run from four to eight weeks. Classes are held from 9:30 to 11:30 a.m. or 1:30 to 3:30 p.m. on weekdays (except Friday). They are not held on town-observed holidays. Courses may be canceled if fewer than four students register.
If interested in a SeniorNet program, contact Heritage Center at 203-938-9725. If courses are full, there is a waiting list. Openings often occur just before the start of classes.
