What do I need to join the course?

A willingness to learn and a positive attitude! You should understand a little bit about the basics of using a computer and accessing the internet. If you want to develop these basic skills, you could attend our Getting To Grips With Using Your Computer course and our Using the Internet on Your Computer course first. This course is suitable for if you would like to learn the basics of using your emails on your computer.

What do I need to provide for the first session?

There is nothing specific that you need to provide for your first session, but you might find it helpful to bring a notebook and pen to make some notes to help with your learning. If you already have an email address, it would be helpful for you to know the email address and password for the account. You don’t need to have an email address already, one of our friendly tutors will guide you through creating one.
