Use of computers and the internet are now an integral part of all daily life; necessary for everything from employment and education, to social interaction. Despite the growing importance of computers and being connected to the internet, the United States Department of Commerce has stated that nearly 30% of Americans do not use the internet at all; showing that many may have fallen behind in this fast paced digital and computer age. This is due to many factors and includes demographics from all segments of our population.
In order to help address this issue in our own community, in March 2017 the South Robertson Neighborhoods Council, along with our initial partners Microsoft, The Robertson Branch of the Los Angeles Public Library, and the SoRo Community Foundation, first collaborated to create FREE and local access to basic and intermediate computer literacy courses. Since then, the program has continued to offer new classes each session.
The SORO Digital & Computer Literacy Program (DLCP) offers 12 classes per month (3 per week) at varying days and times. Each class is 90 minutes with time for questions. These courses are open to anyone in the City of Los Angeles 17 and older who feels they need help getting more proficient with computers and the internet.
These workshops are designed to introduce you to the world of personal computers and how to safely get online and use the web and email.
The Fundamentals of Office 2016 workshop series showcases the best of the new features from Office 2016 whilst also teaching participants the key fundamentals of each application through hands on tutorial exercises. Workshops include:
