How to Read a Web Page
Do you find navigating websites frustrating? Working together, we will identify the different areas of a typical website. Banners, drop downs, and links to other websites or emails will be covered. How do you know if the information on a web page is up to date and reliable? Is there a way of getting rid of annoying advertisements? There will be time for discussion and evaluating specific websites.

Internet Banking
If you have a computer, iPad or a smart phone you can use it to do all your banking on line.
WESTPAC, a SeniorNet sponsor, have prepared  an introductory course that will show you how safe and easy Internet Banking is.
The first part of the course led by our local Westpac Manager, Louise Busson, covers how it works and the safe guards used. The second part includes demonstrations using a replica account and an opportunity to practice yourself.
The Westpac account is used for the demonstration but as all banks follow similar applications this workshop is applicable for anyone wanting to become an Internet Banker. You’ll wonder why you held off for so long once you see how convenient it is!
