IT learners - getting the most out of your tablet
First meeting will be at the home of Anne Ponting in Ewyas Harold on Mon 13th October at 10.00 a.m
I am open to ideas or request for specific subjects that could be covered at a group meet. I have an Apple Ipad and would be happy to demonstrate this device alongside my Nexus Tablet. If you are thinking of buying a tablet maybe this will help make up your mind.
If you have any ideas or specifics please reply with your suggestions to webmaster, saying what would you like to get help with?
I am your Webmaster and following on from the U3A meeting on Wednesday Feb 8th, I am proposing to set up an IT group, the content and subject matter is yet to be decided.
I propose to start off at a basic level and listen to your feedback and tailor future group meetings to suit. I should mention that we are talking about Microsoft Windows and PCs, we will not be covering any of the Apple products.
What do I do with my computer, and what might you want to do?
I use my computer to access the internet and research interests and hobbies,
I shop (and bought vacuum cleaner spares, modelling supplies, books and CDs this week).
I access facebook every day,
I send and receive emails daily,
I check the weather,
I manage my finances weekly and use online banking,
I have booked flights, hire car, hotels and bought event tickets for my holiday.
I research places to visit on holiday.
I take photographs and order prints online.
I make free video phone calls to my friend in Dubai and Canada
I could order from Asda, Tesco and Waitrose for home delivery
We will not start until March, if you have any ideas or specifics please reply with your suggestions to webmaster, what would you like to get help with?
Outside of U3A meetings I can offer you, on a one to one basis, advice, coaching and support on topics such as Internet access, email, shopping, booking holidays, word processing, spreadsheets, anti virus, installs and updates. I would come to your home and discuss your needs. If you feel this would be of benefit to you please contact me webmaster
I own and use an Android Smartphone, a Google Nexus 7 tablet and a Kindle ebook reader and an Apple IPad, if you have any questions about these.
We welcome suggestions, please contact the webmaster
