         FREE for current financial members of SeniorNet.

Help and Practice is from 2.30 to 4.30 p.m. on the first and third Friday of the month.

As good Friday is on 6th April that session will be moved to 30th March

It's a FREE problem-solving and practice session for current financial members.

Help is available for queries and problems concerning Apple Macs         

and PCs with Microsoft Operating Systems:  Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7 

Everyone is most welcome.

Entry is via the hall - please sign in and wear your badge.

Arrive any time between 2.30 and 4pm and bring your queries to our helpers. We are obliged to limit each member's time to half an hour.  No question is too basic to ask - we have all been there!  Experienced members will be on hand to help you.     It is also an opportunity to practise your computer skills on the Learning Centre's  computers.  Bring along your manual and hone your skills.

         All the Learning Centre's computers are connected to the internet     

                           There is wireless internet connection available for laptops.

You could bring your manual and work through it with a helper nearby.
You could practise mouse and keyboard  or any other skills using software on our PCs.Do bring your laptop but please ensure your battery is fully charged.We look forward to helping you with computing difficulties. We don't have all the answers but usually we can point you in the right direction.   
The next Help Session, because Easter Friday is a Holiday, has been rescheduled
to Friday 30th March in the Hall from 2.30pm until 4.30pm  
The following one is on 20th April.

Remember that you can often find video instructions to solve computer problems when you enter a search in Youtube!

Other news and updates from Seniornet Nelson



Hence the SeniorNet courses have been wonderful as I have learnt aboutcomputer processes in an orderly way and have filled in the vast gaps in my knowledge as well as learning some new tricks.The course manuals are a great resource and I often refer back to them e.g. whenmaking a text box. We like helping people to make the most of their computers, and we are rewarded by the excellent progress members make when they are prepared to practise.


SeniorNet Federation News

There is no direct funding from NZTA to run these courses but the resources can be used free of charge if charges for Staying Safe workshops are for your time, the venue, refreshments, photocopying etc, and not for profit. The Federation will be working on the recommendations detailed in the report but overall we can all be proud of the findings in particular the high value that communities place on the work done at our Learning Centres.
