iiNet to host ‘Internet for dummies’ workshops
- 10 January, 2012 15:20
Perth-based ISP, iiNet, has announced it will be holding educational programs to teach people basic computer and Internet skills.
The company will host two Learn with iiNet workshops at its Subiaco, Perth, headquarter each month.
Run by the ISP’s staff, the sessions will cover a variety of topics including social media etiquette, Facebook 101 and how to set up a wireless home network.
The workshops were inspired by the success of its annual Open Day, which took place October last year.
Sessions are opened to non-iiNet customers as well and people can register online to participate. The first two workshops, to take place on the January 16 and 17, have already been booked out.
Each workshop is limited to 35 people - to avoid overcrowding and ensure each attendee gets the attention they need from instructors, an iiNet spokesperson told ARN
iiNet will schedule more workshops throughout the year and the company is toying with the idea of introducing classes to other capital cities.
In other iiNet news, the company acquired South Australia-based ISP, Internode, in December last year.
