A community group wants to know whether Katherine needs a computer club.
Katherine Rotary has been approached to consider forming a Katherine Computer Club.
Rotary secretary Chris Dixon said the club would run classes in areas like how to buy a computer, how to access the net and email, making and editing movies "and oh so many other things".
"I have addressed the Katherine Seniors Club, talked to my young school aged driving students as well as general community members and the consensus is that Katherine could do with a computer club open to anyone of any age," he said.
Mr Dixon said club members could teach each other.
The club could run workshops, tutorials, presentations and displays that cover:
- desktop, laptop or tablet
- buying and setting up a computer
- flash, thumb or usb drives
- backing up and hard drives
- getting online
- using email
- surfing the web
- organising files
- games and how to play
- editing photos
- what is streaming?
- downloading movies
- make your own movie
- learn simple word processing
- the power of databases
- making sense of numbers in excel
- the power of Powerpoint
- what is freeware?
Mr Dixon said Rotary was prepared to offer the use of its conference centre for free so a computer club could be established.
"What I need is some support from the community."
