PRIME TIME Computer lab classes are relaxed way to learn

By Brian Daly

At the Rochester Senior Center, we have a SeniorNet Computer Learning Center that is "... a comfortable place for seniors to learn. …"

; They can take computer courses taught by trained volunteers in their own peer group. The lab is equipped with a laser jet printer, color ink jet printers, Zoom text (for those with impaired vision), flatbed scanners and computers that are networked for Internet access.

SeniorNet offers introductory classes for the "first-time" personal computer user through advanced classes, such as Quicken and Graphics. Our small class size ensures help from the instructor in addition to several "coaches" for each session. Our aim is to provide a comfortable place for seniors to learn.


To be a member of the SeniorNet, you must first become a member of the Rochester Senior Center. We would then register you with the SeniorNet organization for a one-, two- or three-year membership. SeniorNet is an international nonprofit membership organization for seniors who want to learn computer skills.
