EVAN is committed to transparency, and as part of our service model, we encourage our EVAN IT Pros to use understandable language as they assist you so you can learn alongside them. Educating others about technology is important to us and we want to share some of our insights. Did you know that your local public library is an excellent resource for media and free courses that could help you learn basic computer skills?
Public libraries are under utilized. They offer a great foundation to help you learn about computer hardware and software. Looking through your local library’s event calendar could reveal free courses in areas such as:
- PC purchasing
- Google Docs
- Mobile devices
- Computer basics
- Microsoft Office
- Social media
- Windows Operating System
Many of these free courses are offered in addition to the volumes of traditional reference material and online access provided at no cost by most libraries.
A small investment in learning more about some of these technical areas can help you feel better informed when making your next technology purchase or providing background info to your EVAN Pro on your next support call. They will also help you understand the logic behind some of EVAN’s commonly recommended best practices, such as:
- Creating complex passwords
- Using two-factor authentication
- Keeping your PC updated
- Tightening your Wi-Fi and home network security
EVAN is more than just a great source of technology information; we have Master Certified Professionals waiting to meet your IT needs right now.
