In-person free introductory computer classes are being offered at Hawai‘i Community College.

This course will be available at all University of Hawaiʻi Community College campuses throughout the state through September.

The three-hour “digital readiness” classes are open to all Hawaiʻi residents 18 years and older who want to improve their digital literacy. The course is designed to help those with little or no computer knowledge.

“I am not afraid of using the computer anymore,” said Fely Dias, who took the course at Windward Community College. “The digital readiness class has helped me to navigate the computer better on my own. I can see the computer is a very convenient tool for me to handle the day-to-day things now. I am very appreciative that this class is free. I like this basic class. I learned to create an email and to browse the internet, which are wonderful.”

Participating campuses also include Honolulu Community College, Kaua‘i Community College, Kapi‘olani Community College, UH Maui College and Windward CC.
