Course Description

This 5-week course will cover the essentials of how to use a Chromebook, which is a type of laptop that is great for beginners who just want to use the internet. Chromebooks are fast, secure and cost-effective computers that run the Google Chrome operating system. By the end of the course, you’ll have a foundation for using the device to navigate the internet. You’ll also learn to send and receive email. We highly recommend that you follow Chrome Essentials with Introduction to Digital Culture, which will offer additional practice.

• Prerequisites: A Gmail address. This course is best suited for people who have had some experience using the internet on any device. If you need help setting up a Gmail address, please call the Senior Planet hotline: 888-713-3495.

A Chromebook will be provided to borrow for the duration of the course. You will be given the opportunity to receive a Chromebook by Montgomery Counties “Computer for You” program.
