Google creates a “Teach Parents Tech” package

Just in time for the holidays, and getting close to the cut-off date for even electronic greeting cards to arrive in time for Christmas, Google present the “Teach Parents Tech” Care Package site.

This site allows anyone to create a greeting card with a number of instructional videos (provided by Google) on a range of different topics, from changing your background on Mac or PC to setting up video chat and sharing photos online. The resulting email is a little bland and not as exciting as the promo on the GMail login page shows, but I think it does the trick.

The only video that’s missing is how to check your email and play videos… I guess a little in-person help may be necessary for some parents.. 🙂

UPDATE: Here’s the link to the original Google Blog article. I guess I’m a little late to the party.

  1. Can I still get a Tech Support Care Package???? I am one of those Mom’s that is still wanting to
    learn more all the time of what my computer can do and now that I am retired I would take the time
    to learn and not have to ask my children all the time. I think this is the best thing I have heard about.
    It was in my AARP bulletin this month (March 2011) WE NEVER GET TO OLD TO LEARN!
    THANK YOU Judy my e-mail is fidgetfatim@yahoo.com
