Tech Savvy Seniors – Introduction to the Internet: Part 3

Course Overview

Take the next step into the digital world with part 3 of our Introduction to the Internet!

For many people, CDs , DVDs, books, tapes and other physical media are becoming a thing of the past. Today you can download movies, music, television shows and books from the internet without leaving your home. You can also get new programs and games for your computer very easily, without ever having to step into a store. This workshop walks you through how to join that revolution.

You may want to build on what you’ve learned in the first two Introduction to Internet workshops by completing the series with this session – or maybe you’ve heard that you can find music, books and movies online, but aren’t sure where to look or what you need to access entertainment content and save it to your computer. This workshop shows you how.

Macquarie Community College operates from a range of venues across Northern and Western Sydney. We have campuses in Blacktown, Carlingford, Chatswood, Epping, Mt Druitt, Richmond, and Ryde. Enrol now!
