Introduction to Digital Culture for iPads
2/4/20 – 3/5/20; Tuesdays & Thursdays, 1:30 – 2:45pm

This 5-week course explores the growing role of the internet in everyday life. By the end of this course, you’ll know how to connect more easily, avoid scams and fraud, identify reliable health resources, and virtually attend cultural events and museum exhibits. In other words, you will have a better understanding of digital culture! This course will also give you the chance to meaningfully practice skills that you learned in a Basics or Essentials course. iPads will be provided for use in class.

Prerequisites: This course is taught on the iPad, which is Apple’s tablet. You should have already taken iPad Basics or iPad Essentials, or be somewhat comfortable using a touchscreen on a tablet or smartphone. You must also have an email address.

iPad Essentials
2/4/20 – 3/5/20; Tuesdays & Thursdays, 3:15 – 4:30pm

This 5-week course will cover the essentials of how to use the Apple iPad, how to navigate the internet, and how to send and receive email. By the end of the course, you’ll have a foundation for using an iPad and the internet to enrich your life. We highly recommend that you follow iPad Essentials with Introduction to Digital Culture for iPads, which will offer additional practice. iPads will be provided for use in class.

Prerequisites: None. This course is designed for people who have never used an iPad or have very little experience and want a solid introduction.
