"Our most popular classes are the iPhone and Android Smartphone classes where we teach students how to use technology in their everyday lives as well as to keep in touch with family, friends and share pictures," instructor Obie Weeks said. "In classes like Solving Spreadsheet Problems, we work with students to resolve any issues they are experiencing in their own programs. Another opportunity for one-on-one help is through our Fix It Friday program."

In addition to classes held at Crestview Estates Clubhouse, the Foundation for Senior Care hosts a weekly open lab Fridays called Fix it Friday where seniors can walk-in for help with software or hardware problems. There is no charge for this service, but donations are encouraged.
