All Things Apple! with Beryn Hammil
If you are new to All Things Apple! and would like to attend class, please register by contacting Librarian, Bonnie Groshong at: email@example.com
Instructor, Beryn Hammil, will then email you a welcome packet that include instructions for how to participate in the Zoom meeting. You must register in advance on Zoom each week for each class you want to attend. After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing links to joining the meeting.
Class topics will be divided into Part 1 at 2pm and Part 2 at 4pm. Descriptions of each part are shown in the schedule below. You’re welcome to participate in any and all classes, and for some topics you’re encouraged to participate in both parts to maximize the learning experience of that subject.
ALL THINGS APPLE – ZOOM CLASSES JUNE 2021 SCHEDULE
Each topic will cover information for the Mac computer, iPhone, iPad, and iPod Touch.
These class topics were put together based on input from students, and while some of these topics have been taught recently, there’s always something new to learn in each. The content of each topic description will be adhered to, but discussion is not limited to just what’s presented in this schedule as one thing often leads to another.
Doors for each class will open 15 minutes prior to that class starting and we will start on time. When the class capacity of 100 participants is reached in the live Zoom room, those who get “locked out” will be able to view the class by live streaming it on YouTube. This is called the “Balcony Section.” Those who are registered to participate by half past the hour prior to class starting will receive an email with the link to the live stream. It will be sent out within 15 minutes of the class starting. If you’re viewing the class from the balcony you will not be able to raise your hand to ask questions but can nonetheless learn something new.
At the end of each class participants can stay for a Q&A session about that or any other topic. Because many people leave at the formal end of class, those who are watching the class from the balcony section will be able to join the live after-class Q&A to have their questions answered.
A recap video of each class will be available so you can review material on YouTube, and you can build your own library of them, but you must participate in that class to access it. Instructions for how to do this are given in the orientation email you received with your welcome packet as well as in the email for the live stream Zoom link sent out before each class starts.
Pre-registration is a requisite for each class. Invitations to register are sent out each THURSDAY morning for all of the following week’s classes, and you must register for each class separately.
Time shown for all classes is Pacific Time; please adjust accordingly for where you are.
Beryn’s Byte of the Apple newsletter will be sent to you each Monday and the Invitation to Register each Thursday.
