Raleigh SeniorTechEd is an all-volunteer organization dedicated to providing adults with education and access to computer technology, including tablets and smartphones, at locations in Raleigh and Knightdale. Our courses are designed for individual attention via hands-on experience with the objective of building confidence for new users and enhancing the skills of more experienced users. Our program is attuned to the specific needs of adults, to enable them to enjoy and use the latest technologies on their laptops, tablets, and smartphones.
We offer small group classes on a variety of subjects, ranging from the very basics to more advanced topics. We will teach you to use your devices for games, email, music, research, to look up medical information, to check the credentials for your doctor or hospital, etc.
Each class has a maximum capacity of only 6 (for hands-on classes) to 12 students (for seminars), so everyone benefits from personal attention and instruction. Manuals and/or handouts are provided and note-taking is highly encouraged. A $5 Open Help Workshop to help solve your technology problem, answer questions, or for the practice of class exercises is available from 1:30 to 3:30 pm on the 1st and 3rd Monday afternoons at our Knightdale location and on the 2nd and 4th Monday afternoons at St. James United Methodist Church. Open Help Workshops are scheduled for the A. E. Finley YMCA, on the 1st Friday from 10 am to Noon and at our latest location, the REX Wellness Center on one Tuesday per month (10/15, 11/12 and 12/10 ). Note: Workshops resume after Labor Day.
Raleigh SeniorTechEd provides volunteer opportunities within the organization, where volunteers enjoy peer-to-peer fellowship and interaction as they help others learn new technologies.
Raleigh SeniorTechEd is a 501(c)3 organization. Donations are tax-deductible. We welcome all students or volunteers and do not discriminate on the basis of race, color, religion, gender expression, national or ethnic origin in any of our activities.
Our Fall semester is starting with some exciting new educational offerings such as Using your Samsung Tablet, Cutting the Cable Cord (a class looking at ways to reduce the cost of cable TV), Travel Planning Using the Internet and several new Genealogy classes. Classes start after Labor Day with a new, much requested, registration system that will allow you to register online and pay with PayPal or your favorite credit or debit card. You will still be able to print an invoice and mail in your payment if you prefer.
We hope that all of our past (and hopefully future!) students had a safe and relaxing summer and are ready to learn something new! We look forward to seeing you this Fall for some fun computer training!
Our Fall semester is now open for Registration! We have a brand new online system which we hope will make registration and payment quick and easy. Check out our new classes and sign up today!
