Goodwell, Okla. -- Busy adults are enrolling in courses offered at Oklahoma Panhandle State University’s new Guymon Classroom! Located on the corner of Fifth and Roosevelt, the first courses begin this summer, and the convenient evening classes provide busy adults with an opportunity to learn practical skills or expand knowledge to use in their professional and personal lives. Meeting for 75 minutes for two evenings per week, even the most involved men and women can find time to learn.

Is the twenty-first century leaving you behind? Do you rely on your children or grandchildren to help you with computer use? Computers for Beginners covers all basic operations plus internet usage. Instructor Dave O’Sullivan will teach two sessions of the same class. The first meets 5:30-6:45 p.m. on Mondays and Wednesdays from June 5 through June 30. The second session meets 5:30-6:45 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays July 5-July 28.

Mr. O’Sullivan will also teach Microsoft Office, a course that offers beginning-to-intermediate Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint. Learn how to type basic letters, insert clip art, and much more in Word. Create spreadsheets, charts, and filtered lists in Excel. Master the basics of PowerPoint and design effective, professional presentations. This course is also offered in two sessions. The first meets 7-8:15 p.m. Mondays and Wednesdays from June 5 through June 30. The second session meets 7-8:15 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays from July 5 through July 28.

Computers for Beginners and Microsoft Office courses are offered consecutively during both sessions so students may conveniently enroll in both.

The third course offered this summer, Spanish for Business, is designed to give participants helpful communication tools for relating to Spanish-speaking clientele. Instructor Teri Mora will center the curriculum on oral communication and comprehension. The first session meets Tuesdays and Thursdays from 5:30-6:45 p.m. from June 19 through July 14. The second session meets Mondays and Wednesdays from 5:30-6:45 p.m. from July 17 through August 11.

Each student who successfully finishes a course will be awarded a Certificate of Completion. These courses are taught only on a non-credit basis; no grades or transcripts are available.
