Free Online Technology Courses

Hewlett-Packard offers free technology online courses. I first discovered these courses several years ago through an online genealogy friend. At that time, the courses were insructor-led for about four weeks or so and there was even a course on genealogy.

Today, Hewlett-Packard offers the following types of free online courses or short training:

  • On-demand courses (4 self-paced lessons)
  • How-to videos (most 5 minutes or less)
  • Quick lessons (approximately 20 minutes)

Courses or short training sessions are offered in six catagories:

  1. Digital Photography
  2. Home Office
  3. Microsoft Office and Adobe
  4. PC security and maintenance
  5. Business basics
  6. IT professionals

The format of the online courses or short training sessions includes readings, short quizzes, step-by-step instructions, and/or demos. There's plenty to choose from and I hope that you will find lots of online courses and short training sessions to update your technology skills.

BTW, I'm upgrading my software skills and am enrolled in the Microsoft Excel and PowerPoint 2010 courses.
