VGCC Adds Daytime Computer Classes At Warren County Campus In Spring

Vance Granville Community College’s Occupational Extension Computer Center will offer classes in the daytime at its Warren County Campus in the Spring 2004 semester.  

Previously, due to limited computer lab space, these courses have only been offered at night. Classes will be held on Fridays from 9 am until 1 pm.  Each course will last for six weeks and cost $55. Textbooks are optional and the registration fee is waived for students 65 and older.

Two courses will be offered. One, Beginners Guide to Computer and the Internet is for those who are new to computers, who are not sure what the Internet actually is. It is designed to get the novice comfortable and up to speed with computers, and it focuses on the basics with emphasis on commands that are common to many computer applications.  Students will also learn to surf the Internet and basic email usage. This class will be offered twice in the spring, with the first class starting Jan. 16 and the on April 16. 

The second course, Word & Excel Basics, shows the student why Microsoft Word and Excel are the two most widely used computer applications in the United States. Students will learn basic word processing and electronic spreadsheets, how to create, edit and format documents, and create spreadsheets using formulas and functions. This class is offered once in the spring, beginning Feb. 27.

“We are excited to be able to offer these courses at a more convenient time for Warren County residents,” said Ann Behar, VGCC Computer Center coordinator. “We realize that many people either did not want to be out late at night or had child care issues, and we hope that this addition will help make it more convenient for people to get the computer training they need.
