I am trying to come up with a basic curriculum for a small computer class for senior citizens who are interested in learning basic skills such as how to- log on and off, surf the internet, write a letter, and internet search engines.  Does anyone have any suggestions as to content or topics that I may not have thought about.  All suggestions are welcome.  My email is msnancyo@lycos.com  Thanks everybody!!

Maybe how to set up a free email account 

How to view/send attachments.

How to print out web pages.

Copy and paste


Those are the most common (repeat) questions we get at the library from people over 65.

Also - some basic security know how would probably be useful.  Basic key commands, maybe.  How to save documents to folders/creating folders.
