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: Holiday Tech Tuneup - Fireside Room - Ken Spencer
Just in time for the holidays, Ken will be featuring a timely tech tuneup. This will be an update to all lot of current technology, and what you need to know for the holidays buying season. Ken will be covering some of the new happenings, and your choices in TV streaming, phone services, and a real potpourri of other gadget news and happenings. This workshop will cover all kinds of products across the spectrum, not just Apple. You will find ways to cut costs on everyday things guaranteed or your money back. There will be plenty of time to answer any specific questions you may have.
iPhone/iPad Basics - E-25 - Zulay Frost & Marganne Meyer
The first portion of class time (before the break) will review some iPad/iPhone basics focusing on settings options, and a review of button controls and how they can toggle functions depending on your Settings. The second portion will be app specific (after the break). As time allows, Zulay will demonstrate how to share your life through picture taking, using apps such as Postale™, Postagram™, and PopCard™ share events as you experience them such as traveling, parties, or other special moments. Zulay will also cover making Holiday Greetings cards, announcements, or invitations more personalized including options for sending paper copies of your creations directly using apps like Just Wink™, RedStamp™, and Paperless Post™. As time allows, Marganne will lead a segment on: want to check printed and audio books out from the library onto your mobile device without leaving your home? Want to listen to TED talks, PBS’s ”Wait, Wait… Don’t Tell Me!” or other podcasts covering every subject imaginable? We’ll help you take advantage of all these things and more using your mobile device and a few free apps.
Photo Editing Basics - E-24 - Robert Gouine
Robert will present an overview of general photo editing tools and techniques for your Mac. These tools and techniques can be used in many photo editing applications such as Elements, Photos or iPhoto. This class is geared toward people that are new to photo editing on a Mac.
Texting - E-23 - Pete Lozzi
Texting! Seems like an easy one, but turns out there's more to it than meets the eye! What is SMS? What is iMessages? Why are some messages green and some blue? What settings are best? We will also take a look at other messaging / social apps like Skype, Facebook, Snapchat, GroupMe and other popular messaging applications!
Ask Richard! Ask Karen! - E-21 - Richard Applebaum & Karen Downs
Note: Richard is soloing this month. (Karen will be unavailable.)
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. Should you have 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.
