Meeting Description:

Struggling to provide jargon-free, basic computer training for an adult audience?  The My PC Series, a free online curriculum, aims to make this challenge a bit easier.

This webinar features My PC program manager Todd Watts, and includes background on using Windows 7 and Windows Live Essentials to teach basic computer and photo-editing skills. We’ll also highlight lessons and resources offered with the My PC Series.   The webinar will strive to help you understand how the My PC curriculum could be applied at your library or organization. 

This webinar is suited for public libraries and nonprofits in the United States interested in providing Windows 7 classes to the public or staff.
