New, Free Series Available at Lakeshore Technical College Helps Those Challenged by Technology Become Comfortable
FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
CLEVELAND, WI – Lakeshore Technical College is offering a new series of free virtual learning sessions aimed at helping area residents become more comfortable with basic computer and technology skills. The “Crush IT” series introduces essential educational technology and resources in 30-minute sessions.
“A noticeable number of people in the community tell us they are concerned their technology skills may not be good enough to attend college in today’s world where those skills are needed whether attending courses in person or online. For those who have lost jobs or want to find a more recession-proof career, that concern can prevent them from taking steps that could help them build a brighter future for them and their families,” said Lakeshore Director of Student Resources Foua Hang.
According to Hang, the solution to overcoming technology worries was to expand some of the workshops Lakeshore was providing current students and make them easily accessible at no cost to the general public.
Topics include Microsoft Basic Word and PowerPoint, Introduction to College Technologies, Study Skills, Tutoring Resources, Navigating Financial Aid, Connecting with Class Virtually, and others. All sessions will be recorded and available on Lakeshore’s website for future viewing. Some topics address how to use technology in place at colleges around the country, including Lakeshore.
Registration does not require a Lakeshore account. For information or to register, visit gotoltc.edu/crush-it.
