The Evaluation Report of the first year of training courses, published recently by Fondazione Mondo Digitale and University of Edinburgh, demonstrates that most of the seniors enrolled in the courses had few or limited knowledge about the PC and found difficulties in understanding and remembering basic subjects as to how the PC or the Internet work.
In all the countries, the elderly participants improved their PC skills after they completed the course programme. See tables 1 to 3 below for more details.
As a result of their experience within the project, participants declared they will continue practicing with the PC after the end of the courses, in some cases using a friendâ€™s PC or going to libraries or a social centre. Some of them will enrol in other courses and purchase a personal computer to exercise and use the Internet to remain informed.
