Microsoft introduces the ‘My PC Series’ – a free curriculum of adult computer classes for less tech-savvy consumers

The My PC Series is a hands-on, jargon-free curriculum of computer classes that Microsoft has developed for adult learners.

This new Windows 7 and Windows Live Essentials centered curriculum is based on extensive audience and instructional research about how less tech-savvy consumers want to learn new computer skills. The content is designed for adults and has been tested with well over 500,000 students.

Benefits to offering the My PC Series program:
– Access to a complete, comprehensive, and free set of delivery materials for each of the My PC courses and workshops, including instructor guide, a set of PowerPoint slides, student handouts, and a collection of course files needed to deliver each course or workshop.

– Access to free materials to support instructors in evaluating the curriculum, learning the software, and preparing to teach, including white papers, and software resource kits.

– A full suite of marketing materials and guidance to help attract the right students, such as customizable flyers, catalog ads in a variety of sizes, and e-mail templates.

The curriculum consists of ten 1 hour workshops and four 3 hour workshops suitable for personal enrichment or workforce development and a longer 12 hour Introduction to Windows 7 course for business and home users.
