Getting More from Apple iPads

This course is for those with some prior experience of using the internet and email (though not necessarily on an iPad). The whole course is presented using an iPad, however much of the course is relevant to the iPhone too (though there are some differences), so if you wish to attend with an iPhone, that’s okay and we will point out the differences as we go along.

Incidentally, if you’re very new to using the Internet and email (on any device) then you may find that our Starting Off with Apple iPads is a better starting course for you, as we specifically teach those topics in depth to give you a solid foundation before you discover what else the iPad can do through our Getting More from Apple iPads course.
