Lybster Learners Enjoy Internet Lessons
29th August 2011
Everybody Online Caithness last week completed delivery of its second Internet for Beginners course in partnership with Lybster, Latheron, Clyth Community Development Fund. The Everybody Online project has been running in the Caithness area for 2 years now and is designed to encourage more people in Caithness to get online and benefit from everything the internet has to offer.
The 6 week Internet for Beginners evening class was organised by Shona Munro, Project Officer for Everybody Online Caithness and supported by LLCCDC. The course has been a great success and demand has been so high that Eric Larnach, Resource Centre Manager has requested the Everybody Online project continue in the area with new sessions starting at the end of September.
Eric is pleased with the response the classes have had in the area 'The people taking part have found it very beneficial and the response has been very positive. We are constantly trying to deliver interesting and new classes for the community and working with Everybody Online has helped us achieve that'.
Shona added, 'The courses have been a great success with LLCCDC and a great boost for the Everybody Online project in the area. Many people in Caithness are missing out on the benefits of using the Internet and I hope that these classes and similar in the area, will go some way to help individuals and communities build up their knowledge and confidence.'
With digital technology ever increasing and becoming part of everyday life Everybody Online projects are designed to assist and support people get online and become competent users of technology, helping ensure no-one is left out of the digital world. The Caithness project has proved to be such a success there will soon be 2 new projects starting across the Highland area.
