This is a program for creating public web sites for local U3As. It was started in 2007 and has steadily grown in popularity so that there are now around 300 such sites in use. It was created, and is now maintained and developed by members of a local U3A. It is not related to the Third Age Trust site, but it is an independent "grass-roots" initiative.
This series is published by Wiley in partnership with the Third Age Trust.
It now includes a total of nine books covering different technology related topics. They are written in a straightforward, jargon free way with step by step instructions throughout. Including explanatory screenshots, easy-to-read fonts, full colour and lay flat binding.
Perfect for individual reading if you’re struggling with a particular topic, so you can take yourself through the book chapter by chapter at your own pace in the comfort of your own home. Or if you run a technology course at your local U3A group and are looking for a book that your class can use, then one of these from the series could be what you’re after.

This movement began in Australia when men realised they could come together around practical tasks on a regular basis, particularly if they had a designated place or workshop where tools and work in progress could be stored. This appeals to men both living alone or with partners and at all ages although the vast majority of 'shedders' are at or beyond retirement date.
