3Ts IT Project
West Wight residents are being empowered to get online thanks to the 3Ts IT project.
The 3Ts IT Project (Technology Test Drive Training) helps those with little or no experience of using computers, who want to try their hand at using a tablet computer.
The training programme can be run remotely, in-person or as a mixture of the two; enabling people to learn from the comfort of their own home, at their own pace and with COVID safety in mind.
Participants are able to test drive a tablet, loaned to them for the programme, and learn the basics.
They will receive up to three hours a week of one-to-one support and training from an IT volunteer.
Topics to choose from include searching the internet, making video calls, sending and receiving emails, and creating a document.
3Ts IT Project is volunteer-led through Our Place and the West Wight Sports and Community Centre, with funding from Wight Aid and another donor.
