Basic IT Skills

Make sure you are on the right side of the digital divide. Be able to communicate, find information, conduct banking, make bookings, broadcast or find information, get insurance, and much more faster, cheaper and more conveniently than those that are not. Knowing what tools are available and how to use them effectively gives you a competitive advantage in your personal or business dealings. A small investment in acquiring the right know how can yield a massive livelong return. And with the right help it is not difficult.

Set up your own e-mail account to sent not only text but all kinds of documents, photographs, plans, videos etc.

Set up a calender to keep track of your appointments, important dates, and even to send yourself automated reminders of application deadlines, insurance renewals, birthdays, anniversaries etc.

Be able to access your documents, spreadsheets, presentations from anywhere with an internet connection and allow access to others you decide to share them with. People in different parts of the world can even work on the same document at the same time.
No need to always purchase expensive software like Microsoft. Google’s free equivalents may be the correct solution for your needs. If in doubt why not book a consultation to see how they compare, what are the pros and cons of each.

Use the web cam on your laptop to produce a video and upload it to file sharing sites like You Tube.

Use your computer to make free phone calls and set up video conferences.

Use Google Maps and Street View to find a business, an address, to see your own house, or to give directions to your location to someone else.

Google provides a powerful suite of free and easy to use tools. But so do some other providers. For example, if you are interested in working with images, for example to produce a banner, sign or logo you could book a session on the use of Paint.net. We can download a copy of this software to your PC.

One-to-one or group sessions can be arranged, for personal home use, for business or for schools.
