Radio Shack Offers Online Classes

If you are looking to learn more about using tech gadgets there’s plenty of ways to do it. You can buy a book. You can also learn by doing – one of the best ways to get practical experience. Many local universities and other organizations offer classes, mainly in computers, but also other things. Cnet has a nice library of videos on various tech lessons as well.
Not to be out done, Radio Shack is also offering a training program.
USA Today writes The electronics retailer on Wednesday announced a series of virtual training courses to help consumers learn about tech topics including digital photography techniques, choosing and setting up an HDTV, what to look for when buying a new computer, and information about satellite radio.
The classes will have staggered start dates beginning this month and November.
Participants who sign up online can take the courses at their own pace but it shouldn’t take more than a month to complete. The classes will be moderated by instructors with experience in the specific topics, company officials said.
The hope, of course, is that shoppers will use their newfound wisdom to buy products from RadioShack.
