Jim's Free Computer Tutorials
For the last few years, one of Pass IT On's long standing volunteers (Jim Paterson) has dedicated his Friday mornings to writing easy-to-follow illustrated computer tutorials. These tutorials cover a range of topics including some for absolute beginners and for people who have disabilities which make it difficult for them to access a computer.
Jim has a new career in the movie business. In the first video you may even spot Pass IT On's frequent four-legged visitor! Just click anywhere in the boxes below to start watching that video.
