Description

Senior Citizens tend to have a crippling fear of all things digital. Unlike kids these days, all they had to operate in their childhoods was probably a television. It is natural for them to be nostalgic and shun computers. But if you are seeing this, you will know that there is a lot of value in learning basic computer skills.  This course is designed to equip the senior citizens with knowledge on basic computer skills through which they can stay in touch with their children, grandchildren, friends and family members.
