Computer courses and activities
Introduction to computer courses and activities

Since 2011, our center has been providing different free computer courses on diverse topics to our members. At the same time, in respond to our service philosophy of “Putting family first”, we have designed a series of computer and application courses for parents and children to not only encourages the members to learn on how to use the computer and the Internet, but also aim to enhance parent-child communications and narrow the digital gap between both generations.

Previous completed computer courses:
The members are putting efforts to learn speed decoding method.
The trainer uses Internet browsing software.

In order to increase the interest of computer learning among the members, apart from the computer courses, we have also designed computer application courses and activities, ie: Internet application series, festival celebrations and outing events. During the application courses and activities, at least 30 minutes computer related knowledge will be taught so that the members could learn while having fun!
