Manitowoc tech college LTC offers free computer and technology courses


New free series offered at LTC for those challenged by technology

Lakeshore Technical College is offering a new series of free online learning sessions aimed at helping area residents learn basic computer and technology skills.

The college said in a press release that the “Crush IT” series presents technology and essential educational resources in 30-minute sessions.

“A notable number of people in the community tell us that they are concerned that their technology skills are not good enough to attend college in today’s world where those skills are needed, whether that be following in-person or online classes,” said Foua Hang, Director of Student Resources at LTC. “For those who have lost their jobs or want to find a more recession-proof career, this concern may prevent them from taking actions that could help them build a better future for themselves and their families.”

According to Hang, the solution to overcoming the technology hassles was to expand some of the workshops that LTC offered to current students and make them easily accessible at no cost to the public.

Topics include Microsoft Basic Word and PowerPoint, Introduction to College Technologies, Study Skills, Tutoring Resources, Navigating Financial Aid, Connecting Virtually with the Classroom, and others.

All sessions will be recorded and available on the LTC website for future viewing.

Some topics deal with the use of technology in place at colleges nationwide, including LTC.

Registration does not require an LTC account.
