Saddlebrooke Computer Club “elearn” Opens

Last spring I announced that the SaddleBrooke Computer Club was launching a project to put selected classes online. I offered a sneak preview into this project by providing access to the first of these classes (computer security) in prior SaddleBrooke Progress issues.

While our development efforts are still ongoing, we now have a few classes and even a User Group presentation replay available to club members on our website’s new “eLEARN” Center. The active online presentations include:

Computer Security

Setting Up a Google Account for Gmail

Should I Move to Windows 10 (User Group replay)

Photoshop Elements A (select lessons only)

You’ll find some icons for other classes in the eLearn Center that are not active yet, but they will be populated as development efforts continue.

More online classes are planned for our eLearn Center. We’ll keep you informed as additional classes and presentations are added. This new e-Learn Center is an additional benefit for SBCC Members. Our live, instructor-led classes, will remain the primary venue for SBCC educational opportunities.

Computer Club Members can access the eLearn Center by going to our Website at, hovering over the Enrollment link and clicking “eLearn.” When you select a class, you will need your usual member sign-in credentials to access the class.
