Outback Connect

Sunday 3 October 2010

Outback ConnectFrom the South Australian Government:

The South Australian Government has extended its Outback Connect program, which was previously only available to people living in regional and outback South Australia, to people living the metropolitan and peri-urban communities.

This program delivers free online training on topics such as Introduction to Computing, Using MS Word, Using MS Excel, Using email and Using the Internet. Elective topics such as the use of Skype, Facebook, MySpace, blogs, podcasts, online photo albums, making movies and using PowerPoint are also offered.

Most sessions are delivered live over the internet using software called CENTRA. Participants log in to the virtual classroom via CENTRA, interacting with the trainer and other participants. A computer with a sound card, a headset  with microphone (provided by Outback Connect) and an internet connection (preferably broadband) is required.

Telephone support is available to participants and includes assistance in accessing the CENTRA virtual classroom and using the applications taught in the training sessions.

Participants have the opportunity to gain formal recognition for their training by undertaking assessments with the training provider. This means that participants can, by undertaking training and assessment, gain a Certificate I in Information Technology.

IT resources may be accessed at a number of local community centres, libraries and information resource centres, a list of which is available from Samantha Thorpe, DFEEST, 08 8226 3108 or 1800 887 422,
