All of us want to learn. It used to be taken courses on computers – desktops and notebooks. Today, there are smartphones. Not a new idea, but we have always talk about closing the digital gap between the savvy and non-savvy members. If only, we have a place. Many of our members have the knowlede and the experience. Learners can pay a fee, and the proceeds can go to pay the cost of the venue, the instructors, etc. Yew Kwong has suggested that we draw up a list of members who are interested to conduct e-sessions. I too think this is a good idea. Hew Lee is one good example. Let’s draw up a list of topics, and if you think that you can teach a particular topic, raise your hand here. Once we have a sizeable team of instructors, we would look at a team of people to organise these courses. Feel free to add the topics that would be of interest to seniors and Singaporeans in general.
- Instant messaging – Viber, Whatsapps, LINE, WeChat, facebook
- Emails – smartphones,
- Android system – Internet browsing, Maps
- Storage – dropbox, google box, etc

And, if you have suggestions for a venue, please let us know. Members can offer to conduct these above courses, find a venue, and also charge a fee. Please go ahead.
