Macintosh Made Easy
Held over three consecutive Saturdays, this course requires no prior knowledge of working with Mac computers, making it suitable for absolute beginners.
However, many satisfied participants have been much more experienced, some having used Macs for several years.
‘I liked the emphasis on learning general principles which we can transfer to other areas’
‘Trying different things on the computer without being afraid to break something’
‘I have a better understanding of my Mac plus the confidence to explore further with it.’
‘a concise and clearly articulated overview … was invaluable in providing confidence to work with the Mac.’ Allan
Living In The Cloud
If you have a computer on the Internet, you might be on ‘the Cloud’. If you have a smartphone or a tablet, you’re almost certainly on ‘the Cloud’.
Did you know that?
Do you know what that means? The huge possibilities? The threats?
Are you secure? Do you know what to do about it?
This course will be held over two consecutive Saturdays and requires no prior knowledge of cloud computing.
‘I found Kevin’s teaching style excellent, he was well prepared, the course had good content material and he answered our questions (no matter how silly they were)!’ Judy
Starting from the beginning and going beyond the rudiments use small projects to drive the learning. A very practical introduction to Word, Excel (and Powerpoint).
‘Kevin is a great tutor and he has excellent course material’.
‘Kevin was able to teach us in a way that helped us not only learn Excel and Word but also improve my computer skills’.
‘Kevin moved from both Word and Excel and showed us how many of the procedures are similar’.
‘Kevin is a great tutor – managing the fine art of working with a broad spectrum of skills and capabilities’.
‘iTunes in a Day’ and ‘Photos (iPhoto) in a Day’
If you don’t know what iTunes has to offer or you haven’t quite got the hang of how to do things in iTunes, ‘iTunes in a Day’ is for you.
‘Photos (iPhoto) in a Day’ will use those programs but much of what will be covered is applicable to many photo programs, e.g. Picasa. And, of course, we’ll look at options for backing up and exporting your photos.
Playing music from your iPad or Android
If you play a musical instrument but haven’t caught up with the technologies for doing this, these will get you up to speed:
- Creating backing tracks, practising and playing from chord charts
- Managing notation and a library of ‘books’ on your iPad
‘Would like to let you know that I loved the presentation last Saturday on iReal Pro. It was just the right stuff I needed to know. Looking forward to next Saturday session on playing from notation.’ John
