Brush Up on those Computer Skills

In Pictures has launched a new line of free computer how-to tutorials. There are 12 online tutorials ranging in subjects such as Microsoft Office, OpenOffice.org, Dreamweaver 8, HTML and CSS skills. The tutorials can be used by anyone, FREE of charge.

The tutorials were developed as part of a U.S. Department of Education study, to make it easier for people with learning disabilities to learn computer subjects. When the study was completed in 2006, it showed that the illustration-based tutorials worked well for everyone, not just those with special needs.

All of the tutorials are free to use by anyone. Revenue is generated for In Pictures by banner advertisements on each page. In Pictures’ founder, Chris Charuhas, says, “Our ad-based revenue model wouldn’t have worked two years ago. But now, with the growth of online advertising and the advent of content-indexed ad systems such as Google AdSense, we think it’s very promising.”

Later this year, In Pictures will release new free tutorials on Microsoft Office 2007 programs, as well as Photoshop, Photoshop Elements, and Fireworks. There will also be new Web programming tutorials for non-programmers, on MySQL, PHP, and Perl.

There’s another site also worthy of your intention that is full of tutorials on improving your computer skills such as HTML, XML, CSS, Scripting, .Net, Multimedia and a whole lot more. The site is called W3 Schools. Go get some.

  1. You can also visit freeskills.net for computer tutorials on various topics. The site is not as user friendly for disable persons, but it does provide free access to some invaluable computer learning application.
