There is still time to register for the following computer courses starting in June with instructor Michael Kleiner at Isothermal Community College’s Polk Campus.

• Computing for the Workplace – Learn the basic skills you need to use a computer at work including basic computer vocabulary, how to use the calendar and various programs in Microsoft Office. Practical exercises using the keyboard and mouse provide a base from which you can go on to learn internet, email and word processing skills, or continue studying more in-depth courses on specific programs of your choice. Mondays and Wednesdays, 2:30 – 5 p.m., June 6 – 29.

• Word II – Pick up where you left off with Word I. Learn to insert pictures and text boxes, create columns and tables and even merge your documents with outside data. Feel free to bring your questions or projects. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 6 – 8:30 p.m., June 7 – 23.

• Technology Help for the Tech Shy – Are you having trouble keeping up with changing technology? Do you have a phone or camera you can’t understand? Would you like to learn how to text, add attachments or send pictures from your phone or email account? Bring your cell phone, smart phone, digital camera, Blackberry or iPhone to class and we will make it work for you, not you for it. We will also cover laptop and tablet computers as they relate to the communication age. Tuesdays and Thursdays, 2:30 – 5 p.m., June 14 – 30.
