The UBC Learning Exchange offers free, small group workshops for learning basic and advanced computer skills in a welcoming and friendly environment using the latest computer software.
Which workshop is best for you?
- Basic Computer Skills: Basic computer skills workshops are for those with little or no previous computer experience. Maybe you haven’t used a computer at all? Maybe you want to learn how to send an e-mail? Workshops include an introduction to computers, typing skills, word processing, using Microsoft Word, internet navigation and e-mail.
- Advanced Computer Skills: Advanced computer skills workshops are for those who already know how to use Microsoft Office, for example, and who want to build on their skills. Workshops cover presentation software (Microsoft PowerPoint) and spreadsheets (Microsoft Excel), and more advanced word processing using Microsoft Word.
While you are taking part in one of these computer workshops, you can also practice your new skills in special tutorial sessions where you will get one-on-one instruction and support.
How much time do the workshops take?
Each workshop is three hours long, once a week, and includes practice time. Beginner sessions run for six weeks and Advanced sessions run for three weeks.
When and where are workshops and tutorials held?
Workshops and tutorials are held on weekday mornings at the Learning Exchange at 612 Main Street.
