Suggested Topics for Outwood Computer Club Members


1]  Learn My Way Course Modules    Register or Sign In ?

We suggest that Members new to computers should work their way through the 'Learn My Way' course modules which provide an excellent introduction to Computers and the Internet [www or World Wide Web].  Tutors are available to help if / when desired [contact Michael Hooley, Tony Banks or Melvin Ashton].

The 'Learn My Way' course is government sponsored, free of charge, and a certificate can be printed on successful completion of the course.

Other Members, who did not complete the previous 'MyGuide' or 'GoON' courses, may also wish to complete this replacement course - possibly as a 'refresher'.  Please note that, as a registered centre, Outwood Computer Club should be able to claim for learners who have completed the course.  This requires a minimum of THREE learners per month and each learner has to complete at least TWO of the following modules but this EXCLUDES modules 1 and 2.
