iPad Apps and Books (3 Sessions) Course Fee $15
Now that you have taken the iPad Basics class, the fun continues as you learn how to find, install, and update those apps that will make the iPad your personalized device. Besides the apps of your choice, we will specifically look at ebook reader apps including iBooks, Kindle, and Nook. Then we’ll explore using both ebooks and audiobooks from your local library. Prerequisites: iPad Basics course, iPad with iOS software version 5.0 or later, your Apple id and password (for “purchasing” apps in the App Store), your Adobe id and password, if you have one (for library books), and (optionally) your library card. If you have a question about any of these requirements, send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Switch to Mac – the Basics. (2 sessions) Course Fee $10
You’ve made the leap from PC to Mac. Now that you’re here, it’s not surprising that you may be feeling a little lost. This class will help you get comfortable in your new environment.
Learn the essentials of translating PC actions to their Mac equivalent. Discover how easy it is to switch from the PC’s Start Menu and task bar features, to the Mac’s Apple menu in the corner and the dock along the bottom of the screen. We’ll look at some of the commonly used apps including Safari (the web browser to get you on the internet), Mail, iPhoto, and iTunes. Explore the gestures available on the trackpad and learn how to enable the ones you want, and have the System Preferences app demonstrate all of them for you. Spotlight and the Finder app let you search for, browse, and view all the files on your Mac. What apps would you like to use? We’ll give you an introduction to them!
Prerequisite: A MacBook running Mountain Lion (10.8) or later. If this is a problem, or if you have an iMac, contact MaryKay@Podlecki.com
Downloading Pictures and Free Programs (2 Sessions) Course Fee $10
The Internet is full of fun photos, videos and programs available to be downloaded and used on your own computer.

Trace your Family Tree (2 Sessions) Course Fee $10
This course consists of class instruction and lab time showing you how to organize and display basic and detailed genealogy information, including how to search archives and print family trees. A lab period provides time for application and practice. The application used to demonstrate the various concepts is Legacy Family Tree. This course is for people who are seriously interested in genealogical research. Recommended prerequisite: Some computer experience.
Hands-On iOS 7 Workshop (1 Hour Session) No Fee
The new iOS 7 platform simply makes what you do now easier, faster and more enjoyable. While many apps may look different, the way you do things feels perfectly familiar. We will explore about a dozen new features including changes to the Photos app, new camera features, the new AirDrop photo and file sharing feature and iTunes Radio as well as quick access to the Control Center and new ways to handle multitasking and to search.
This CLC program is a public service to help Apple mobile device owners become familiar with the new operating system. The devices it supports include the iPad 2 and newer, the iPad Mini, the iPhone 4 or newer, and the latest iPod touch. Those attending are invited to bring their Apple mobile devices with them. If you have already done a backup and then updated your mobile device to the iOS 7 platform, which you can do for free, you will be ready to tap and swipe along with us. However, if you’d prefer just to see what iOS 7 is all about, simply come and listen.
