Auburn University to offer computer classes at DPL

Published 4:43pm Thursday, June 6, 2013

Auburn University will offer an “Online and Computer Security Class” at the Demopolis Public Library on Thursday, June 13 at 1 p.m. as part of their Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP).

This class shows students how to keep themselves safe online. It shows students how to create strong passwords, avoid online scams and phishing scams, how to avoid infecting their computers with viruses, and how to know whether or not the sites they visit are legitimate and secure. It will also familiarize students with the different types of threats they can encounter online, and what they can do to keep their computers safe.

“The BTOP Program has been great for our library patrons,” says Library Director Morgan Allen. “ Jonathan Gross does an excellent job of teaching computer skills. Our patrons who have taken other BTOP classes have commented on how much they learn and how they are more confident in using computers.”

If you would like more information about the class or would like to register, call the Demopolis Public Library at 334.289.1595.
