Educational Opportunities at SaddleBrooke Computer Club
WHAT WE ARE NOT - We are NOT a group of computer geeks who sit around and talk about bits, bytes & processors.
WHAT WE ARE - SaddleBrooke Computer Club is a teaching club, staffed by volunteers with expertise in computers, software, smart phones, cyber security, streaming TV and other related technical areas that you want to know more about. Our educational opportunities are presented in several different ways...
Unlimited Courses in our Fully Equipped Classroom
Our primary venue for classes is in our classroom, equipped with PCs and Mac computers. Our class calendar is chocked full of courses. For a complete listing, see the "Classes" or "Calendar" link on this Website.
To enhance your classroom experience, we limit the number of people that can attend each class. Certain very popular classes fill quickly, so check often to make sure you get the classes you want.
Online "eLearn" Classes
Our most recent teaching option is our Website’s new “eLearn” center. Here members can take online classes from anywhere at any time. Online classes include things like “Computer Security,” “Photoshop Elements A & B,” and more. Video replays of some of our User Group meetings are also present.
To access our eLearn classes, be sure you are logged in and then select the eLearn tab on this Website.
User Group Meetings
These monthly meetings are open to ALL Saddlebrooke residents – club members and non-members alike. Meetings usually have a computer subject speaker and include a question and answer session with knowledgeable PC and/or Apple instructors. A prize drawing is held at the end of each meeting.
Meetings are held at 1:00 p.m., usually on the third Monday of the month, with occasional variation depending on venue availability. Check our Website Calendar for exact date and topic.
Tech Help Clinic
One-on-One Help - Bring your device ... any desktop computer, laptop, smartphone, tablet, router, printer, camera, Internet of Things (IoT) or other tech item that you own. Experienced users will help you “one-on-one.”.
Technical Discussion Group
We are blessed to have Steve Solberg leading his popular Tech Discussion Group. The topics vary widely, and are generally a little more advanced than our other educational opportunities.
This group meets in the Mesquite Grill at 7:30 a.m. every other Tuesday. This is a good time to partake in the informal discussions over breakfast. To learn more about this group, send an email to: firstname.lastname@example.org, and Steve will put you on his email list.

Investing in YOU
We are continually updating our classroom equipment and infrastructure. To the delight of users and instructors, alike, all of our Macs and PCs have been upgraded with solid state drives. This result is a very noticeable increase in overall speed of these computers.
A new custom-built instructor’s PC was put into service, improving the performance of our instructor-led demonstrations. And a brand new Epson projector was recently installed, providing a bright, high resolution display at the front of the room..
It is your annual class fees that make these kind of upgrades possible. Our computer classroom is the envy of other similar clubs. It is our goal to keep all our equipment and software state-of-the-art to maximize your classroom experience and learning environment.
