KBS Computer Clinic
Since 2011, KBSonline has facilitated a series of computer classes for those a little frightened or bewildered by modern technology. Many have felt separated from their younger friends and relations and complained of being ‘out of the loop’. The first two years’ sessions were hosted in John Blandy School because of their profusion of laptops. Getting the assembled company out of the little people’s chairs after 2 hours was a challenge and, as members acquired their own laptops and tablets, we changed the format and the venue. We now meet in the Village Hall soon after Christmas each year. For the past two years instead of ‘teaching’ computer skills we have established clinic format where anyone can come with their individual problems and get advice. These problems have ranged from safe banking and selling on the Internet to disaster recovery following the loss of passwords. We’ve not been stumped yet!
Look out for announcements about the 2017 series.
