The Aurora Seniors Computer Group is focused on helping members use their computers. We have regular meetings open to all members at 10:00 am each Tuesday where we present a program of computer instruction. We frequently invite outside presenters to address specific technical and equipment topics. We also hold a Tuesday afternoon drop-in to provide personalized help when required. Computers may be desktops, laptops or tablets (iPad or Android), Windows OS or Mac OS.
Unless a presentation, workshop or teaching session is scheduled in the Computer Room, the computers are available for individual use by ASA members during the hours when the Centre is open. In practice, we try to keep Friday available for personal use.
See our calendar for scheduled days and times.

Technology Education: Computer classes are now being replaced by the Cyber Seniors online program. Assistance with this new program is available on the Tuesday afternoon drop-in help.
Tuesday drop-in sessions from 1:30 pm to 3:30 pm
Every Tuesday, any member who is looking for any kind of technical help can come by and we will try our best to assist. All the help we provide is covered by your payment of the $1 daily activity fee. We provide one-on-one help in these sessions.
