Please see the schedule page for the list of courses and dates for the Spring 2017 term.
This term we are introducing or reintroducing some courses. The top section of the schedule page contains the details.
Have some friends that could benefit from some of these classes? Encourage them to sign up for some classes. It’s always more fun to take a class with someone you know so drag that Luddite friend of yours out of the house to join you. And remember — we do not teach one-on-one classes so the best way to ensure that a class you signed up for will not be cancelled is to encourage a friend to sign up and take the class with you.
Our opening lineup, Intro to Computers with Windows 7 (taught twice this term), Email using Gmail and Windows 10, are a great way for some seniors new to computers to get started and are an excellent primer. Word Online and Excel Online give you FREE online versions of the popular, but expensive, Microsoft Office programs. Learn how these work and integrate with the cloud. Also, what you learn is directly transferable to MS Office.
We are bringing back Facebook this term. We have slimmed this class down from 6 days to 5.
If you’ve recently got a new laptop with Windows 10 or you’ve upgraded an older computer to Windows 10, check out the Windows 10 class.
Digital Photography is back and will be taught by Mike Weis. This class will be taught on the library computers but using your camera, tablets and phones to export pictures to the computers.
Again this term is the ever-popular iPad class, but now with iPhone as well. Received a new or hand-me-down iPad/iPhone? Want to get more out of your iPad/iPhone than you’re using it for now? Join this class to learn more. This is also a great refresher class. This class will be on iOS 10 so you can benefit even if you’re taken the class before. We have slimmed this class down from 10 days to 9.
Remember than any class marked BYOD mean Bring Your Own Device, be it a laptop or iPad. BYOD classes are typically taught in the large room downstairs – park in the lower lot. All other classes use the Castle Shannon Library computers and are taught upstairs – park alongside the library.
Also remember, at the bottom of every page is a place for you to enter your email address to “Follow” this blog. That means that when I update a page or add a new post (typically for an upcoming class) you will be notified via email.
