Print this page

Want to share photos with friends on Facebook?  Wonder what “to the cloud” really means?  Curious about twitter, twending, and other terms?

tech-boot-camp-logo.jpgGet answers to these and other technology questions during the Louisville Free Public Library’s Technology Boot Camp—a six-week program to help individuals discover and strengthen skills to work, play, and learn online, beginning October 8.

Technology Boot Camp is a free, self-guided program delivered online. Participants access the Technology Boot Camp website from a computer with Internet connection at home, work, or any Library location. Each week the program website will feature a different topic: blogging, cloud computing, social media, photo sharing, and more. Easy-to-understand explanations build knowledge and fun hands-on exercises apply new skills. A series of classes at library branches will offer extra support, if needed.
