Continuing Education and Customized Training

Why MCTC

"Our condominium overlooks the campus, and MCTC has been a very good neighbor to us. So, as an art lover, I took a painting course which allowed me to sharpen my technical burshstroke skills and let my creative energies flow."

–Sylvia Sabo, MCTC Continuing Education Student

SeniorNet

So why are we here?SeniorNet Logo

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 for curriculum development and operational support was arranged and continues through 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.

When

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. Find classes and register using our course schedule.

Classrooms

There are two classrooms with a PC workstation for each student. Our instructors will walk you through each lesson, guiding you using a video projection of their own PC screen on the wall. In addition, volunteer coaches are available to support students with patient, one-on-one guidance through each lesson.
