Olney Central College will offer a free basic computer class this spring focusing on how to access and utilize Google Workspace.

CIS 1601 Computer Skills 1 will meet in the Anderson Library computer lab from 6 to 8:50 p.m. on Tuesdays, beginning Jan. 11. The 8-week class will be taught by Jane McCormick, the Instructor for OCC’s Information Systems Technology Program.

“The class will be ideal for people who want to learn more about the computer and would like to understand more about the Google products they can use for free,” McCormick said.

The course begins with a basic introduction to computer software and hardware. McCormick will then assist students in creating a Google account before introducing them to the web-based Google Workspace.

Students will start off learning how to create and edit text documents with Google Docs. During the course, McCormick will demonstrate how to add text, format text and insert images as well as how to share documents.

As the course progresses, students will move on to Google Sheets creating charts and then explore Google Slides to create basic visual presentations incorporating images and links.
