MojaRijeka.HR - Get online week at CTK Rijeka, Croatia

  • 0:02 - 0:05
    Hello, Let me introduce myself. I am Ante Šušnjar,
  • 0:05 - 0:08
    manager of the Internet club, and from now on, also a lecturer.
  • 0:08 - 0:14
    We are now in the classroom where the “PC and Internet Basics” course is taking place.
  • 0:14 - 0:21
    The Centre of Technical Culture has joined the European campaign called “Get online Week”.
  • 0:21 - 0:27
    The aim of the campaign “Get Online Week” is to reduce by half the number of people,
  • 0:27 - 0:31
    i.e. the European citizens who so far have never used the Internet.
  • 0:31 - 0:43
    We included the course takers in this initiative by registering them via the site “Get Online Week”.
  • 0:43 - 0:49
    The campaign helps people in making the first step, i.e. breaking the logjam,
  • 0:49 - 0:53
    allowing them to experience the feeling of using the Internet for the first time,
  • 0:53 - 1:01
    and this centre, as well as, other centres in Europe, help them do it.
  • 1:01 - 1:08
    In this way they will become more self-confident when using the Internet.
  • 1:08 - 1:13
    At present, the campaign includes 70,000 people from across Europe.
  • 1:13 - 1:19
    At the end of the campaign eighty people out of one hundred from Croatia
  • 1:19 - 1:25
    will come from the Centre of Technical Culture who joined the campaign.
  • 1:25 - 1:28
    Which are the other goals of the campaign “Get Online Week”?
  • 1:28 - 1:34
    The goals are to raise the awareness of people about Internet use, through the media,
  • 1:34 - 1:41
    get people online, meaning, so to say, that the focus is on the European citizens who are off-line,
  • 1:41 - 1:45
    who have never used the Internet
  • 1:45 - 1:52
    and on the promotion and more extensive use of telecentres across Europe.
  • 1:52 - 1:55
    Who are the people present here today?
  • 1:55 - 2:00
    The people present today are those who have joined our course.
  • 2:00 - 2:06
    Among them there are pensioners, unemployed and employed persons,
  • 2:06 - 2:12
    but until now they have never used the Internet, this is the first time that they use it.
  • 2:13 - 2:18
    What is your experience with the initiative, is it well accepted in Rijeka, is the response to it good?
  • 2:18 - 2:25
    At present this initiative is taking place at the Centre of technical culture in Rijeka,
  • 2:25 - 2:31
    and I would like to take this occasion to invite all the other centres that also have the Internet
  • 2:31 - 2:40
    or if they are in a position to help these people in another way to log on to the Internet for the first time, to actually do it.
  • 2:40 - 2:46
    Well, I can say that I am delighted. I am only sorry that I didn’t start earlier.
  • 2:46 - 2:54
    It was only recently that my children persuaded me and I realise that it is very positive.
  • 2:55 - 2:57
    So how are you getting on with computers? Can you manage it?
  • 2:57 - 3:03
    Well I can, I thought it would be much more difficult than it actually is. I can manage it.
  • 3:03 - 3:06
    What do you like most about computers?
  • 3:06 - 3:10
    Well, searching, browsing, playing cards.
