In partnership with the University for Seniors at AUB and after the success of last year's Introduction of Social Media course for seniors (and the impressive mention on Mashable), AUB's Online Collaborative is offering two courses for the Fall of 2012-13 for senior citizens (age 50 and above).

Computer Literacy for Seniors (CMPL 001)
This is a basic introductory course to computers and technology for people who do not have any knowledge about operating a computer.

The course will cover a basic introduction of how society is utilizing social media, using Facebook and Twitter, searching for and creating blogs and a brief overview of other emerging social networks.
