Troubleshooting Your Computer
Wednesday 2/20 2:00-3:00
What should you do when you try to accomplish something using your computer and it just doesn’t work? This class will teach you skills you can use on Linux systems and other computers to fix issues as they arise. Not only will you learn skills to fix your own computer, you will also learn about how to get others to help you by submitting bug reports.
Use any Computer with Ease
Tuesday 2/19 10:30-12:30
Thursday 2/28 12:30-2:30
Does the fear that you might break something keep you from doing what you want with computers? Once you start to realize that many computer programs are based on the same basic design ideas, you can feel comfortable in front of any computer screen. This new class is debuting as a collaborative exploration, so we can better understand our students’ needs in this regard. Please come with questions and concerns about using computers.
