    I teach computer classes at a local senior center. I would not recommend the Teach Parents Tech site. I gave up after watching five basic videos. The information was incomplete, confusing, and mostly just promoted Google products. As a advertisement for Google it works well. As a teaching tool for computer novices it fails completely. For example, watch the video for how to take a screen shot. First of all, it only applied to Macs, and they didn't have a PC version of the instructions. Second, it only showed how to take the screen shot, and not how to save it and/or send it to someone. What's the point in "taking" a screen shot if you're not going to at least save it somewhere? I'm still looking for a good site for basic computer instructions if anyone has suggestions.
    Thanks,
    Mike
