Apple Essentials: Using Siri / iOS Photography Tricks / Flickr - Fireside Room - Ken Spencer
This class will get you comfortable with using Siri. Siri is your digital assistant, that can make appointments, schedule reminders, reminds you at certain locations or times, and launch any of the apps. Learn how to send messages and emails completely hands-free.
We will learn some photography tricks with your iOS device, and some of the great photo enhancement apps that can be had. Accompanying that, we will discuss the brand-new Flickr free photo storage.
iPhone/iPad Basics II - E-25 - Zulay Frost & Marganne Meyer
This class is a continuation of the iPhone/iPad Basics I course (most topics also apply to iPod Touch). Topics may include: messaging, voice mail, email, map options, basic hardware accessories, and standard apps. This is an open-format class and all topics may not be covered.
Social Media: Facebook Basics for iPad and iPhone - E-24 - Harlan Adams
Facebook is so much more than a social media client. It can be used to rediscover old friends, keep track of history and even create new accounts for you. We will be going through the basics of Facebook which include posting pictures, locations, and text. Class attendees should already have a Facebook account/profile and be able to successfully login.
iMovie for Slideshows (MacOS X version) - E-23 - Pete Lozzi
iMovie is great for editing videos, but even better for creating slideshows! Yes, you can use your STILL images with iMovie to create slideshows directly from the new Photos application in Yosemite (or from iPhoto if you're still using that…). Slideshows can be simple or complex depending on your needs. The plan is to start with a simple tour of the interface and build a simple slideshow. As we progress we will add additional features to create an incredible slideshow that's easy to share with friends and family!
Ask Richard! Ask Karen! - E-21 - Richard Applebaum & Karen Downs
This is an open-format class where attendees help determine the discussion. Do you know how to keep your iPhone and/or iPad up-to-date backed up and synchronized with your computer? Are you making backups of your computer? What is this "Cloud" thing? Are you uncertain how to be safe when making online purchases? Do you have questions about your home WiFi network. Maybe you want to understand how to get remote assistance with Team Viewer. Do you need virus protection? Do you need to tame your System Preferences or organize your hard drive's files and folders? No topic is too basic, or too techie, for us to tackle. If we don't know the answers, we will try to find them.
