e-Citizen program

0

The e-Citizen program is dedicated to enabling citizens to work with a computer for personal use. It includes activities and actions that we encounter daily in the modern society, such as receiving and sending e-mails, communicating via the Internet with governmental and county offices, getting the information or the use of various information services, for the purposes of both personal and business correspondence.

In cooperation with HIZ (Croatian Information Technology Association – the exclusive national ECDL license holderwho carries out the ECDL programs together with the authorized test centers) and Croatian Linux Users Group (HULK), we organised e-Citizen Club workshops. They are divided into three blocks and take place on Saturdays in an IT-equipped classroom, provided by EdukaCentar. (More)
