In an ever-growing age of technology, senior citizens often rely on their children and grandchildren to help them understand and effectively use a computer. There is great value in learning basic computer skills as it helps to remove the fear of technology and opens the way for the simple day-to-day use of computers.

To assist senior citizens in becoming more computer savvy, the University of the Virgin Islands Center for Excellence in Leadership and Learning has tailored a course to help them acquire the skills needed to delve into the digital world more confidently and safely.

Basic Computing for Seniors will be held from 3 – 4:30 p.m., every Wednesday, March 3, 10, 17 and 24, on the University of the Virgin Islands St. Thomas Campus. Participants will receive hands-on instruction on how to send an email, use the internet, understand key concepts, safely save files and much more.
