Computers, Tablets, Smartphones
The Aurora Seniors Computer group is focused on helping our members use their computers and mobile devices as effectively as possible. We hold seminars Tuesday mornings where we present a program about using technology for entertainment, communications, learning and to access the many services that are available to us online. Tuesday afternoons in the computer room are reserved for helping members one-on- one with whatever technical issues they may be dealing with.
If there is no presentation or Tuesday afternoon drop-in session going on the Computer Room is available for individual use by any member of the Aurora Seniors Association. See below for more information and topics coming up for the Tuesday morning seminars.
See our calendar for scheduled days and times.
