Register for just one class or for all of them! Advanced registration is preferred, but walk-ins will be accommodated if possible. Individual class descriptions are below:
Amazon: Amazon is one of the largest online retailers. But it is far more than that. It provides television, movies, music, photo storage, services, and much more. This class will be a brief introduction to some of Amazon's services. Students will learn how to create an Amazon account, how to search for items, how to purchase them, and much more. There are no prerequisites for this class.
iPhone: The iPhone was the first smartphone. It is a cellular telephone combined with a computer and an iPod. You can do almost anything with an iPhone. In this class, students will learn how to use an iPhone. They will learn about calling and texting. They will also learn about apps and how to add them. To get the most out of this class, students should have an iPhone.
