September is here (or almost) and it's time to think about your education plans! What would you like to learn? What do you need to learn? Look at the list to the right. Each month we have new and interesting offerings, as well as traditional topics.

Notice: Because of traffic issues, we making some changes to starting times for morning seminars. Please be sure to check the start times when you register. In September, all morning clubs and seminars, except for 2 of them, start at 9:30. The 2 "experiments," Frames and Online Photo Apps, start at 10 am. In October, all morning seminars start at 10:00 am and all morning clubs meet at 9:30 am. A seminar is a class that meets 1 or 2 times. A club meets once a month, January through December.

Tech Tip of the Month: Have you ever typed a phrase or sentence or two and discovered it was all CAPITALS ? For a simple fix, highlight the text or mistake, hit the "Shift" + "F3" keys, and voila - problem corrected! This tip works in Word and Outlook Microsoft products.

Congratulations to our volunteer, Bill, who was recently recognized by the Austin Senior Resource Alliance for his many contributions to the Austin Senior Community. Click here for more information.

Who are we? We are the "AGE Computer Lab." Since 1997, our mission has been to connect the wisdom of adults with the wonders of technology and the internet.

We provide, at minimal cost, computer literacy to any active adult with an interest in learning. We offer classes to help grow knowledge for both fun and practical uses, including computer applications and digital photography. And, we try to do it with humor and camaraderie.

Our state of the art lab, dedicated instructors, helpful coaches, and materials for home reference set us apart from other computer learning centers.

Classes are organized by skill levels and subjects, and are oriented to the interests of active adults. Learning is fun when it is paced and considerate of the needs of the students. Unlike college classes, we have coaches ready to help - as many as one for every two students.
