After last year’s massively successful introduction, BT Connected Communities returns this January. Initially only a six week course, the programme became a yearlong series of courses due to phenomenal demand. The programme is aimed at providing on the ground access to computers and IT support so that everyone has the chance to get online.
Under BT’s drive to get people tech savvy, Glasgowbury will become a rural creative hub for the Connected Communities project, offering tuition in everything from the basics of getting started online to using the web to meet your needs.
“Simply put, we believe everyone should be connected,” said a spokesperson for BT. “With BT Connected Communities we’ll show how easy it is to go online and experience the World Wide Web – and how it can help make your life better.”
The programme will be tailored to the needs of the participants so registration is essential. Topics include: Using your computer for photos, protecting your computer, Internet safety with children, online banking amongst many others.
Classes commence on January 21st and will run for 6 weeks
Deadline for registration: December 18th*
It is Glasgowbury’s aim to expand the initiative to eventually offer creative classes in various software and computer development.
