What software or tutorials should we use for basic computer skills classes at church?


Our church is considering offering a basic computer skills class (MS Word, MS Excel, MS Powerpoint) using some donated computers/software. We have a few single parents in our neighborhood that have expressed interest. I could also see some of our older members participating. I am curious if any other church has done this and I'm looking for suggestions on software/tutorials that could be used. Thanks.

We love your comments! Thanks for your help upholding the Community Guidelines to make this an encouraging and respectful community for everyone.

I don't know about software/tutorials but I did learn about some free training that is available on-line from www.siouxhudsonliteracy.com (Sioux Hudson Literacy Council) 1-866-550-0697  I learned this from the Employment Resource Centre at the Community Support Centre of Haldimand-Norfolk (Ontario).  Courses are offered re email, facebook, blogging, Microsoft Word, Excel, Powerpoint, and several Self Management/Self Directioons courses such as:  Self Confidence & Self Esteem, Self Defeating Behaviours, Communications, Time Management...etc.  You do have to register ahead for certain time slots (which are limited) but it is free.

St. Leonard's Community Services - will help with computer skills by appointment - and they might have advise about how to offer your own program.  Their Caledonia # (905) 765-6745, Hagersville 905 768-0111
