Temple College has been awarded a grant for the Digital Skills Ready @ 50+ program from the AARP Foundation in collaboration with the OATS Foundation.


Temple College will offer a variety of lectures, workshops, and five-week courses designed to help individuals 55 and older build the essential digital skills needed to find jobs, change careers and explore entrepreneurship.

The first course, Computer Essentials, will run from 9:15 a.m. to 10:15 a.m., Tuesdays and Thursdays beginning Nov. 15, in the Instructional Services Center on the Temple College campus. This 5-week course covers the essentials of how to use the basic functions of a personal computer, how to navigate the internet, and how to send and receive email. By the end of the course, you’ll have a foundation for using a computer and the internet to enrich your life.

There is no charge for the class, but seats are limited. Anyone interested in attending should contact Temple College at 254-298-8625 or bce@templejc.edu.
