|Welcome to our lab, where computer learning is a pleasure!|
We are a program of:
What would you like to learn? What do you need to learn? We have new and fun topics this month, as well as some "classics" that you don't want to miss. Look at the list to the right. You might have noticed that we have a new "theme" for some seminars, called "Ask the Experts." In these seminars, you get to ask the questions, and the instructors/experts will (attempt to) answer them.
Tech Tip of the Month: Do you sometimes think that your internet service provider is not giving you the service speed that you are paying so dearly for? Well, it's so easy to find out. Go to website www.speedtest.net, click on the green "Begin Test," and your discover your up and download speeds with a local Austin server. If you are consistently slower than the service you're paying for, you can use this information to get your provider to adjust your speed or your bill. Tip is courtesy of Carl, the AGE Computer Lab IT Guy.
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.
