Connect Ohio’s Every Citizen Online Classes Launched

The first Every Citizen Online course (left) at Pioneer Career and Technology Center in Richland County, Ohio kicked off on January 3.

Connect Ohio’s Every Citizen Online classes have officially launched.

Every Citizen Online provides free computer training sessions at public libraries and community colleges throughout Ohio and will introduce new users how to access the Internet and how to best utilize all the Internet has to offer.

The goal of the project is to showcase the many educational, healthcare, economic, and communication benefits of broadband use, and to encourage adoption by residents statewide.

This week, six local libraries and/or community centers in Ohio began the training sessions. In addition, Connect Ohio has been running public service announcements on television and radio stations thorough out the state.
