Educational Refresher Courses

Do you need to relearn, or maybe learn for the first time, some common computer applications like Microsoft Word or Excel? Or, maybe you need some pointers about study skills or good grammar. The Continuing Education unit of The Office of Lifelong Learning is now offering online, refresher courses. They are non-credit so they do not count towards a TWU academic degree, but they are a great way to brush on up old and new skills. For more information, please visit http://www.twu.edu/o-ll/refresher_courses.htm.
