Lake Land College’s Club IT hosted a “Tech Savvy” informational session at the LifeSpan Center in Mattoon on April 21. Lake Land students offered their expertise to seniors seeking assistance with various technical devices—phones, laptops and tablets.
Participants were encouraged to bring their own devices and bring questions to the students.
Students helped explain Apple and Android operating systems and also provided one-on-one assistance. They also covered the basic and more advanced functions of social media such as Facebook, Twitter, Snapchat and Instagram.
Participants called the event “fascinating” and “very informative” and expressed a desire for future sessions dedicated to navigating Facebook.
Club IT frequently organizes events that benefit the club and local community. Club IT received the Outstanding Club Award this year at the annual Lake Land College Club Recognition Luncheon.
