Registration for the Fall Series, which runs from September through December 2010, is open and available to the public at http://www.bc-connected.org/technology.
The free and low-cost technology training courses are designed to help professionals and organizations grow within today’s market of interactivity. The classrooms and computer labs are located at Miller College, which is a premier sponsor of the program.
The Fall technology courses have themes of online networking, low-cost IT tools and Internet security. These topics were suggested by participants of the Spring 2010 Totally Technology sessions.
