Computer Literacy

VCLA offers computer classes as well as online learning options for adults who are hoping to improve their computer literacy skills at work, at home, or in the community. 

Drop-in IT help - Every Friday VCLA offers a weekly drop-in workshop for people with IT questions of various kinds. Come by our Kentville office on Friday mornings any time from 9am to 12pm with your IT related question.

Online Learning - VCLA has a few opportunities for computer-based learning. Lexia and Reading Horizons software may be available for learners interested in working on basic literacy skills at home using their computer. VCLA also has a learning program called Plato which has both math and communications learning material. For more information, learners should ask their teachers or make a general enquiry at 679-5252.

Computer Refurbishing and Loaning Program - VCLA seeks funding to employ adult learners who are trying to get into the labour market in the area of computers, to refurbish donated computer equipment to give out to learners who are working with VCLA on their upgrading. VCLA accepts donated computer equipment, ‘cleans it off’, and adds educational software as well as free-ware assistive technology applications for adult learners who are augmenting their classroom and tutor-based learning online.
