 AN END TO INTERNET CONFUSION?

 

The University of Lincolnshire & Humberside is launching a series of sessions entitled, ‘An introduction to the Internet’ as part of National Science week, which begins next month.

 

The sessions will begin on Friday 23rd March at the university’s Cottingham Road campus, and are aimed at more mature adults who may be intimidated by the internet or who may simply want to find out what all the fuss is about.

 

“The internet is fast becoming a main lifeline for communication, information and retailing,” said Dr Trudy Harris. “However, many people are intimidated by the technology, especially the more mature adults.”

 

Through the use of interactive exercises including; shopping on-line, setting up e- mail accounts and internet treasure hunts, the sessions should put an end to people’s confusion surrounding the internet.

 

Sessions are free of charge and will run over a three-day period; Friday 23rd March; 9:00am to 12:00pm, 1:00pm to 4:00pm; Saturday 24th March, 10:00am to 1:00pm.

 

However, there are a limited number of places. Please contact Trudy Harris on 01482 463058 to reserve a place.
