Social Media for Beginners

Introduction

Do you have friends and family overseas? Do you want to learn to use Skype to stay in touch without expensive phone bills? Would you like to see your loved ones on video as you speak?

Course Structure

Core Elements
  • Understand Social Media and how they have changed communications
  • Learn how to setup and use Skype to make video calls
  • Create a Facebook page to share pictures and special moments with your friends and family
  • Use Twitter to keep in touch with what's happening - this can be really good if you love to keep up to speed with breaking news, current affairs and sports results
  • Develop awareness of issues such as "video clips going viral", cyber-bullying and abuse through chat rooms
  • Learn how to talk to your kids about staying safe online
  • The course will be provided in a small "hands on" computer class managed by an experienced tutor. There are no formal entry requirements, although it is best if you have used a computer in the past.
