Fall Community Classes

After refocusing our vision and services at the beginning of September, we created a well-rounded schedule of classes for the fall season. Feedback following the technology conference gave us some great ideas about programs and techniques that people wanted to learn. Better yet, all of these classes were free to the public!

Google Drive Course

The most requested topic following the technology conference was Google Drive. We had a group of eight people attend in person, and we also streamed the class online. If you are interested in watching the course, it can be found on our YouTube channel.

Exploring Excel

We also had a specific request for training on the basic concepts of Microsoft Excel. Although the initial course was very generic, we would love to do a follow-up session if there is enough interest. Excel has so many features that it is impossible to cover everything in an hour.

Backing Up Photos from Your Smartphone

Ever get tired of seeing the “Storage Almost Full” notification on your phone? Us, too. We get a lot of questions about how to save and transfer pictures and video from a smartphone to a computer. Mike’s recommended method involves Google Photos. Learn more by watching this video.

Creating Secure Passwords You Can Remember

Frequent password problems:

  1. You’ve created something simple (AKA “password”) that is easy to guess.
  2. You’ve created something complex and meaningless (AKA “82q!0rp*3”), and you can’t remember it.
  3. You’ve changed some letters to numbers and capitalized some random letters (AKA “M4v3rIcKs”) and it’s easy for a computer to guess.

In this short video, Mike explains how to create secure passwords that are also possible for you to remember.
