You've mastered (at least somewhat!) the basics on your iPad or iPhone, but want to learn more about the myriad fascinating and terribly cool features. We will cover a different topic each week, with some outside presenters, but mainly presentations by participants (you can work in teams). Doing the research for a presentation is a great way to learn how your devices' features work. Remember, none of us is an expert! We will try also to offer a Hot Tip each week. Some iOS (iPad or iPhone) experience is helpful. This is a drop-in class. You can find the schedule and posted notes most weeks here.
