Iowans who don’t know how to turn a computer on can become virtual experts through a course being offered by Iowa State University Extension. Organizers of the “Internet Master Navigator” class say it can take people who have never been on-line all the way to designing their own web pages.Robin Brekke is the program coordinator at the I-S-U Extension. The program runs eight weeks and costs 80-dollars. She says a wide variety of Iowans are showing interest in taking the course. Part of the Internet Master Navigator course is modeled after the Extension’s Master Gardener class. Course “graduates” are asked to volunteer 25 hours of spreading their knowledge of the Internet to people in their home community — either through school, church or some other means.
