The LCCS/LCAP Teaching Program
Computer courses for senior citizens are provided by Licking County Computer Society LCCS) at Zerger senior Center of the Licking County Aging Program (LCAP). LCCS provides the computers, accessories, and projector and maintains the equipment. All personnel who help manage and teach the classes are members of LCCS who donate their time as volunteers. LCAP provides the room, furniture, support from staff, and makes other facilities available to us.
This teaching program began in 1995, with used computers running early versions of MS-DOS. Thanks to private donations and donations from our refurbishing program, we have been able to keep abreast of the rapidly changing computer world. We upgraded to Windows 95 in 1999 and to Windows XP in 2004. A history of our teaching program (see documentation) describes the changes that were necessary to maintain updated instruction during the ten-year period.
Currently, we are using 13 computers running Windows XP, Vista and Windows 7. A class consists of 12 students, an instructor, and 2-4 aides. Each Year, approximately 210 seniors. Class Offerings for January/February 2013 MORE
