I would think that if you publicize this, it would be a *very* popular class. 

Best, 
Mitch.

It's not the same as running a formal class, but SF library system always seems to need computer lab volunteers to help people who are beginner/intermediate computer users. http://sfpl.org/index.php?pg=2000565501 It might give you a lot of ideas for what you should cover in a true beginner course, at least.

As part of the proposed Class-A-Thon week of August 10, I've been considering teaching an extra class on computer basics.

I was thinking I'd cover topics such as what an operating system is, what a browser is, how to use files and folders, how to use context menus, what different computer components do, etc. I'm also open to topic suggestions.



I've been thinking of doing a one-off class like this because my claim that my web development class is open to "absolute beginners" is not completely true. Also, I want to try to apply my teaching style to even more beginner-level topics.



Asking this question via email is a bit silly given the audience, but please tell me if this interests you or if you know of anyone who would appreciate taking this class one evening in August.
