Internet safety skills to be discussed in LCCC program

GODFREY – Lewis and Clark Community College’s Corporate and Community Learning division is planning a class on “Internet Safety: Search, Shop & Bank.”

The class will be taught by CCL Instructor Susan Broadway.

“Learning how to operate a computer effectively can be overwhelming for those who haven’t grown up inundated with technology,” CCL Clerk Danielle Gillespie said. “Susan shapes her curriculum around the needs of her class to ensure that her students leave feeling comfortable and competent around computers.”

The Internet Safety: Search, Shop & Bank offering aims to help people navigate the internet safely. Whether searching, shopping or banking online, this class will cover valuable tips for using the internet safely. Participants should have a working knowledge of computers to be successful in class.

“Shopping and banking online can make life so much easier, but it also makes you vulnerable to cybercrimes,” Gillespie said. “This workshop is designed to insure you’re minimizing risk while maximizing convenience.”

There will be two offerings; both cost $35 and take place at LCCC’s Godfrey campus. The first will be held from 5:30 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, Oct. 25. The registration deadline is Oct. 18. The second offering will take place from 9-11 a.m. Saturday, Oct. 28, and the registration deadline is Oct. 20.

For more information, including how to register, call (618) 468-5701.
