Lxpert and the Ipswich Country Library are working together again this year to offer Internet and computer courses to people in the local community. This is another great opportunity for people to find out what the Internet is all about, the benefits and how to stay safe online. The course is a series of fun and interactive sessions to demystify the Internet with role-playing exercises, hands-on exercises, videos and quizzes. All attendees will receive a certificate on completion of the course and some take home notes. The courses are suitable for a wide range of audience, from absolute beginners and technophobes to regular users who would like to improve their understanding of the inner-workings of the Internet.
The courses will be held at Chaucer Room, 2nd Floor, Ipswich County Library, Northgate St, Ipswich IP1 3DE.
Spaces are limited. Please book your place at the library enquiry desk on the ground floor or call 01473 927 260.
