Janette Mackie from the Citizensonline Get I T Together programme has been out to Westray again, and had some really great sessions with older members of the community. Watch out for request for I-pads as Christmas presents this year – there will be an I-pad beginners course starting at the back end of October, as well as a beginners course for laptops or PCs. Both of these will be very informal and you will learn what you want to know, at your own pace. There is still time to sign up. Contact Corinne at the trust office if you are interested, or watch out for notices.
We are still waiting for the 6 new computers to be installed at the Learning Centre. What is taking time is that we have to wait for OIC, UHI, and Orkney College to all coordinate on this, as the big news is that there will be wifi installed there – that means that folk will also be able to use their own laptops.
Also, if you live in social housing (OIC, or OHAL) and don’t have internet but want it, let either Corinne or Janette (07788 395859) know, as there may be some assistance available.
