AT&T Inc. recently gave the OASIS Institute $500,000 to fund technology training courses for adults in San Diego and 22 other markets.

Its Connections program features more than 30 courses designed to help mature adults learn basic to intermediate technology skills, including Internet browsing, email, social networking, job searching and essential workplace tools such as word processing and spreadsheets.

Since 2002, AT&T and the AT&T Foundation have contributed more than $3.7 million to support OASIS.
