2015 Club Enrollment has started! Clubs meet monthly and focus on specific topics of interest. Learn about them here.

January seminars are now open for enrollment. Look at the list to the right and see new and familiar offerings.

Please tell your friends and neighbors about the AGE Computer Lab. Better yet, help them sign up for a seminar and car pool together to class! You'll both be glad you did.

Tech Tip of the Month: When you use a mouse with your laptop does the cursor sometimes do weird things like jump to another place on the screen? Or when you're typing, does your typed letters sudden start appearing somewhere else on the page other than where you started typing?

This problem can be caused by your typing hands inadvertantly touching the touch pad. It can usually be corrected by disabling the touch pad on the laptop. Some laptop manufacturers have assigned F5 to turn the touch pad on and off. Some use FunctionKey-F6 to turn it off. Look in your computer's help information to find out how. Usually, when you disable the touch pad, a small light in one of the corners of the keypad will illuminate, or a little windows will briefly appear. If one never uses the touch pad, one needs to get in the habit of disabling the touch pad on startup once Windows has presented the Desktop, because the default is to enable the touch pad during startup.

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.
