Course Objectives

The aim of this course is to introduce you to Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.  and show you how you can share updates and photos, connect and interact with friends and others online.

Although more and more people are networking on social media using a handheld computer such as an iPad or Android Tablet, or even an iPhone or smart phone, the settings on all the social media covered by this course are far better controlled using a Windows PC.  For that reason this course will be taught using Windows PCs.


Learners should have their own email account set up so that they are able to create accounts that will allow them to make free use of social media.  Learners should have attended the Starting off with Windows.

You are welcome to bring your iPad or Android Tablet, but please be aware that the course will be taught using Windows PCs.  You should also have attended the appropriate Starters course for your device, and be able to use it confidently.
