Customize, keep computer with Linux operating system during class at RLC‏

INA, Ill. (Nov. 6, 2015) – Students of all ages are invited to learn about the Linux Mint operating system at Rend Lake College later this month. Thanks to local donations, all participants in the class will be able to keep their unique computer at the end of the evening.

The Linux for the Home User course will cover the basics of using Linux Mint, an easy-to-use operating system, for personal use. The free system offers excellent security and provides all the basic programs needed to surf the web, send emails, create documents, produce presentations, and much more. Linux also offers countless applications free to download, giving students limitless options for personalizing their own machine.

During the class, each student will get their own computer to customize. Instructor James Featherstone will be on hand to illustrate how to connect to the Internet, help with downloading free applications, and answer any questions. At the end of the class, students will keep their customized computer, excluding the monitor.

The class costs $50 and will be held from 5 – 8:50 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 17 in the Advanced Technology Center, Room 165, on the Ina campus. For more information, contact RLC’s Community and Corporate Education Division at 618-437-5321, Ext. 1714 or 1380, or at[email protected].
