Learn to navigate the Internet using safe navigation techniques while using different Internet browsers such as Google Chrome, Mozilla Firefox, and Microsoft Edge. Discover the difference between a search engine and a browser. Navigate to specific websites by entering a specific URL (web address) into a browser. Some Internet security issues are included in the presentation.

This is a beginner level class. A beginner-level learner is someone who has never used a mouse, a keyboard, or a computer, and who needs time with one-on-one guidance on very basic skills, or one who needs to review basics before moving on to other areas of computer use. Beginner-level courses prepare students for intermediate or advanced level courses offered by the library. No prior computer experience is necessary.
