MINDS in Beginner Computer Skills

Event Type: Training
Age Group(s): Adults
Date: 4/6/2021
Start Time: 2:00 PM
End Time: 3:30 PM

MINDS stands for Mouse, Internet, Navigation, and Digital Self-Sufficiency. It is the first level in basic computer skills courses in JPL’s computer training program. It moves at a slower pace than the Next Steps in Basic Computer Skills course.

MINDS in Basic Computer Skills is ideally suited for senior citizens who have not used a computer before or job seekers who need the very basics before moving forward. The first 45 minutes of class concentrates on mousing exercises. Participants will learn how to left click, right, click, scroll, drag digital objects from one place to another, and how to visit a website.

The MINDS course also covers how to change contrast settings and enlarge type on a Windows 10 computer. Changing accessibility settings can help users see computer screens better.

Since the MINDS course emphasizes digital self-sufficiency, it encourages not only practice using a computer in class but also introduces participants to online learning so they can strengthen their computer skills at home.
