SCF to Offer My PC Series

(Bradenton, Fla., July 27, 2010) — State College of Florida, Manatee-Sarasota (SCF) Corporate and Community Development (CCD), in partnership with Microsoft Corp., is offering My PC Series, a continuing education program designed to support baby boomers and other adult learners who want to learn new computer skills for home or work.

Based on curriculum provided by Microsoft, the My PC Series takes a unique, jargon-free approach to teaching a variety of “getting started” computer topics. The series includes hands-on workshops on computer fundamentals such as navigating Windows 7 and using free Windows Live tools for photo editing, social networking and more. Participants will learn skills using computers with Windows 7, Microsoft’s latest operating system.
