Digital Literacy Classes Joins LLCC Programming

Lincoln Land Community College has joined hands with AT&T in An effort to address the digital literacy gap among older adults. Through this partnership, free digital literacy training classes will be offered throughout 2024. The program aims to empower older individuals with the skills needed to navigate the increasingly digital world.


Dr. Laurel Bretz, LLCC's Assistant Vice President for continuing, corporate, and professional education, spoke on the importance of the program, stating that the shift toward digital services has left many older adults feeling isolated and excluded. The initiative will look to bridge this gap by providing access to essential digital skills.


The spring curriculum comprises seven initial courses, including Computer Basics (Windows 10), Cybersecurity Basics, Email Basics, Internet Basics, Mobile Devices-Android, Mobile Devices-iPhone, and Video Conferencing. Participants have the flexibility to enroll in one or all of the courses offered.


Classes will be conducted at LLCC's downtown Springfield Center, specifically at LLCC-Medical District, located at 130 W. Mason St. Free parking is available in a dedicated lot opposite the entrance to the facility. 


Those interested in registering for the courses can find detailed information regarding class dates, times, and registration procedures on LLCC's website at www.Ilcc.edu/digital-literacy. Additionally, organizations serving older adults can inquire about arranging classes by calling 217-786-2432.
