Feedback from Participants of Previous Camp

In measuring the effectiveness of the Computer Camps each year, we have received overwhelming responses from the participants. We have seen how the learning culture is still alive and well among these enthusiastic groups of G-oldies.

Some participants have been able to design, develop and set-up their own home-based business using blogs and social media sites to earn some small revenue. Some are utilizing mobile tools to promote, market and publicize their products and services.

Apart from the knowledge they gained from the camp, the participants also enjoyed the networking among themselves and became good friends after the camp.


Conclusion

Feedback and suggestions by participants have been very encouraging and we can see that the computer camps have really benefited them and helped in making them keep abreast with the new technology. It has even enabled them to share what they have learned with their younger relatives, thus bridging the generation gap between them.
