Internet workshops for seniors set for Nov. 29-30

Western Carolina University’s Department of Communication is collaborating with the Jackson County Department on Aging to offer Internet communication workshops for seniors from 6 to 8:30 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 29, and from 3 to 5:30 p.m. Wednesday, Nov. 30.

Transportation for seniors will be provided to and from the Jackson County Senior Center.

The workshops, led by WCU students, will offer one-on-one instruction in WCU’s state-of-the-art electronic classrooms and will focus on getting seniors familiar with communication tools such as Facebook, Twitter and Skype, and with the process of setting up free e-mail accounts and managing online music and video accounts such as iTunes.

Seniors can call 828-586-4944 for more information and to reserve a workshop time and date.
