Back in June, you may have seen a post from Stephanie Gerding on the TechSoup for Libraries blog about My PC, a free Windows 7 curriculum. Last week, I had the pleasure of speaking with My PC program manager Todd Watts on the TechSoup webinar, Free Windows 7 Curriculum: Basic Computer Training at Your Library or Nonprofit.
You can now view the archive of this event, as well as the presentation slides, audio, and links.
The My PC Series offers a jargon-free computer curriculum based around Windows 7. You could start off by downloading the curriculum on the My PC Program page, or you could take a look at the class handouts on the My PC Student page.
During the webinar, Todd provided a great rundown of the program, followed by a lively Q&A from the audience. Three My PC Series course offerings were addressed, all of which are customizable to fit your organization:
- My PC: 1 Hour Series Workshops
A series of basic computer and personal enrichment 1-hour workshops that cover topics adult learners are interested in at a pace they’re comfortable with.
- My PC: 3 Hour Series Workshops
A series of 3-hour basic computer and personal enrichment workshops designed for less tech savvy adult learners. Appropriate as an on-ramp to workforce development programs.
- Introduction to Windows 7 Course
A full-length introductory course with four self contained 3-hour modules that teach more advanced skills to both the home & business PC user.
