11/29/16 - Free Online Training from GCF

Hello everyone!  Welcome back from Thanksgiving break!  This week's Tuesday Tip is in a non-video format but don't despair.  Our video tips will return next week!

Last week's tip reviewed Atomic Learning - the University's online training service.  But let's say a colleague, family member or friend, who does not have access to an online training service, would like to expand their computer skills for free.  Where could they go to find such a service?

GCF (Goodwill Community Foundation) LearnFree.org is a wonderful online basic training alternative and like Atomic Learning, it's open 24/7!  The video library is much smaller than Atomic Learning but it's packed full of technical and non-technical subjects.
