Oklahoma City University offers computer classes for Seniors

OKLAHOMA CITY - Logging on to the computer is an everyday thing for 'most' people.

But what about older adults who are isolated because of a digital divide?

A class at Oklahoma City University is giving seniors citizens a chance to bridge that gap.

Oklahoma ranks 45th in the nation broadband adoption - meaning a lot of people are digitally disconnected.

"Technology is just advancing, so exceptionally that it's important not to leave anyone behind," says a volunteer Alexis Embry.

Oklahoma City University's Inter-generational Computer Center offers programs throughout the city for people wanting to learn a new skill.

Volunteers and students alike say the stories that come after the lessons are rewarding.
