So why are we here?
The mission of the Minneapolis SeniorNet Learning Center is to provide low-cost, basic personal computer education for people over 50.
We are a non-profit organization staffed by volunteers who have a single goal -- to teach seniors how to use a personal computer.
Gladys Green founded the Minneapolis center in 1995 with a gift from Wheelock Whitney. National SeniorNet provided the initial support. The operational support was arranged and continues with the Minneapolis Community and Technical College.
Since the first class was held in 1996, students have registered for over 5,000 courses totaling more than 40,000 hours of volunteer classroom instruction. In our classes, you learn from other seniors serving as instructors and coaches to provide a positive, comfortable learning experience.
Classes are held three terms each year, winter, spring and fall. Most classes are two-hours, one day a week for a four-week session. There are two class periods each day, morning and afternoon, Monday through Friday.
There are two classrooms with a PC workstation for each student. One classroom has ten student PC's and the other six. Each classroom has an instructor's PC with a video projector for lesson presentation.
