Dear Amy: Where can I find free computer courses and other computer information websites? — Maryam, Peshawar, Pakistan
Dear Maryam: Online learning resources like courses, tutorials and videos are making it easier than ever to learn at home. There are even websites that offer free courses and tutorials, such as www.gcflearnfree.org. This site has you covered, from Internet basics to popular software. Another great resource is www.hp.com/go/learningcenter. This site features free courses on digital photography, computer security, software and more. If you're in a hurry, you can also find quick courses.
If you want to learn about a specific software, it can be helpful to visit the software company's website or use a search engine to find information about the software. For example, the Microsoft Office website, http://office.microsoft.com, offers help and how-to information for their products.
You can also try visiting a general computer help website such as www.computerhope.com. This site has a variety of articles with computer tips, an online help forum, and even a dictionary with computer and Internet definitions. Have fun!
