As informed by the director of the Centre for Technical Culture Rijeka (CTC Rijeka) Olivera Stanić, the course on PC and internet basics, taking place under the sponsorship of the City of Rijeka, has been envisaged as a course entitling the beneficiaries who pay in an annual fee for the Internet Club to attend it free of charge.
"The goal of this training course is to provide the citizens with essential PC and internet knowledge to enable them to use independently the internet and PC, motivate them to learn and make progress in the acquisition of IT knowledge and skills. In these difficult times, citizens who are not familiar with PCs, are devoid of access to a number of services that may facilitate and make their lives less expensive," said Stanić.
Lessons will be held on a weekly basis, every lesson will include two periods. The first lesson is scheduled for 9 February, starting at 18:00 h at the Multimedia Centre, Školjić 6. Since the lessons will last until November, all who are interested in it, will be able to join the subjects that they find interesting or even propose topics that need to be addressed.
As informed by Ante Šušnjara, manager of the Internet Club, they will start with PC basics explaining Windows and Open Office, and will proceed with Internet skills – from Google tools such as search, e-mail or translation features, to complementing Wikipedia, using communication tools such as Chat or Skype or social networks such as Facebook. It will certainly be interesting to course takers to learn how to add or remove a video material from Youtube and convert it, or how to buy safely via Amazon or eBay.
When they become members of the Internet Club, beneficiaries get 20 hours of free access to the internet, and much more – although the lessons will be held once a week, with every visit to the Internet Club, the beneficiaries may get useful advice or assistance. Also, at the Internet Club they can meet other beneficiaries and exchange interests or knowledge.
