Lincoln Land Community College (LLCC) is providing free classes to seniors who struggle to keep up with the fast-paced technological advancements. The courses will cover topics such as email, internet, mobile devices, cybersecurity, computer basics, and video conferencing. These classes will be held at LLCC’s downtown Springfield center located at 130 W. Mason St.
According to Laurel Bretz, an assistant vice president at LLCC, the world’s shift towards digital services and access has left many older adults feeling isolated, frustrated, and socially excluded. Bretz stated that these classes are aimed at helping seniors overcome these challenges by providing them with the necessary skills to navigate the digital world.
