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