Facebook Advanced for iPad and iPhone - Library (Downstairs) 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.
Apple Essentials: Essential Apple Apps - Fireside Room - Ken Spencer
Get to know the essential Apps better. Contacts, Calendar, Notes and Reminders are so useful when you utilize the built in features. These Apps on Mac and iOS can make your busy life more manageable. When you leave this class, you will be impressed with what Apple lets you do — or you can get your money back :-)
iPhone/iPad Basics - E-25 - Zulay Frost & Marganne Meyer
This class will cover the basics of how to use an iPad (most topics also apply to iPhones). Topics may include: WiFi versus cellular data, touch typing, copy/paste functions, password protection, using the cameras, FaceTime, 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.
Photo Editing Basics - E-24 - Robert Gouine
Robert will be using Photoshop Elements to present an overview of general photo editing tools and techniques for your Mac. Similar tools and techniques could be used in other photo editing applications such as Photos or iPhoto. This class is geared toward people that are new photo editing on a Mac.
How stuff works! E-23 - Pete Lozzi
Internet! Cloud! Hard drive! Storage! RAM! Memory! Processor!
What's going on inside my computer? What should I buy next? Do advertised features matter? How much storage do I need? Should I be backing up? Should I be on the cloud? Should I have antivirus? What happens when I go online? Where is my email stored? Do I turn my computer off when I'm not using it? What is Bluetooth, and do I have it? Are Macs better than Windows? Do I need a desktop and a laptop and an iPad and an iPhone and an Apple Watch? Ever asked one or more of these questions? Join Pete for a plain English easy to understand walk through on all the stuff we are using day in and day out and why it matters to you!
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 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.
