Fall classes to begin at Computer Learning Center

The Gold Country Computer Learning Center will be starting their fall semester classes on September 8 in the Ponderosa Hall, Gate 2, at the Nevada County Fairgrounds. The semester also includes classes offered in October and November. Most classes are designed for beginner and intermediate students. They are taught in a relaxed, friendly environment with patient instructors and coaches. The classes meet once a week for two hours and run for four weeks. Class size is limited to 8 students. The all-volunteer teaching staff consists of an instructor and several coaches who assist students individually. Our policy is “No student is left behind.” The center provides the students with desktop personal computers and a written manual for each class.

Classes include Windows 7, Level 1 and Level 2; Windows 8.1 Start Screen and Windows 8.l Desktop. Students enrolling in Mac Basics will bring their own laptop to the class. A very popular class has been iPad Basics! Students bring their own iPad to class.

For those who enjoy creative arts, a class is offered to help students learn to use their own Digital Cameras. There are two separate courses for those wishing to learn how to edit their photos using the free software program, Picasa. The Digital Photo Magic class uses Corel Painter to teach students how to turn a favorite photo into a painted work of art. A new Genealogy class is being offered this September.

Technology courses include: 1) PC Maintenance; 2) Improving PC Performance; 3) Build Your Own Computer. Students entering or re-entering the work force, will use Microsoft Office 2013 or 2010 in a self-paced class with one-on-one coaching provided.
