Get the Most out of Your Mac: An Introduction to the Mac Operating System
with Will Van Beckum
January 29 - January 31, 2013

This workshop has already begun or is a past workshop.


Apple products pride themselves on their outstanding design and user-friendly operating systems, and that’s why we love them! But underneath the aesthetically pleasing surface of every Apple computer or device is a powerful set of tools that often goes undiscovered. Learn to increase your productivity by using Mac’s built in apps, preferences, searches and shortcuts.

In this two-and-a-half day intensive participants familiarize themselves with the newest Mac operating system (Mountain Lion 10.8), addressing brand-new tools as well as classic Mac applications. We delve into Apple’s built-in software—like iCal, Address Book, Mail, and Preview—to make sure you’re getting the most out of your apps. We also explore some of Mountain Lion’s cutting-edge features, such as the Notification Center, Messages, Sharing, Reminders, and iCloud. You’ll be surprised at how many timesaving features you’ll discover as we examine the system preferences and review helpful shortcuts!

As the class progresses, we talk about the best way to incorporate your iOS devices (iPhone, iPod Touch, and iPad) into your Mac workflow by syncing calendars, contacts, photos, and more. Learn the ins-and-outs of the Mac operating system and expand your knowledge of productivity-enhancing techniques in this hands-on workshop.
