 Quick!  What's the widely used smartphone operating system in the World? 

If you assumed that the answer to that question was iPhone, Apple's marketing department would be happy ...but you would be wrong. 

Despite the common belief that Apple dominates the mobile phone market, Android based phones now account for almost 83% of all mobile device sales.  ...so here is a good class so that some of those 83% can get more use and functionality out of their Android devices.

Well, it's been fun!!!!

We had two very successful LLi Android User Classes in 2015, but, I am unable to continue offering classes at this time.  I'm hopeful that LLi will find someone else to continue them, but you will have to contact Lifetime Learning Institute to ask and find out if and when they will be offered.

The online class forum is pretty lethargic, but it is alive and usable.  In addition to class notes and discussions that have valuable information for any level Android user, anyone is free to join and post Android related questions that will normally get a response in less than 24 hours.

You can join the previous session class members on the private SilverTechies class forum and get started without classes begin by participating with Q&A, class notes, online discussions, links, files and more!  To Join the Forum, send an EMail to SilverTechies-Owner@YahooGroups.com with your contact information and include why you want to join the forum.

You will then receive an "invitation" email.  Click the "Join This Group" button contained it that emai.  Follow that link, and you will be guided through the steps necessary to complete your membership request.  (Note... your contact information, including your telephone verification number will not be used for any other purpose than forum contact needs!)

The term "Android" covers a lot of ground and a number of different "brand names" such as Nexus, Samsung, Motorola, HTC, Asus, LG, Amazon and others. (..but.not Apple or Windows Devices)

This 8 week class will do it's best to help you get the most out of any Android device and do so in a way that will be valuable to both low and high tech users.

Here are a few (but not all) of the topics that the forum can assist you with;
The a vast number of ways to use Android devices is huge.  In addition to the focus on Android, the use and understanding of Google's other offerings such as GMail, Google Contacts and Calendar, Google Drive, Google Keep and other Google Apps will be used as a common reference.

The Silver Techies forum contains resource information and links plus previously posted user questions and discussions.  SilverTechies forum participation is open to anyone who wants to learn more, or help with, any Android topic.

To be honest, if you have never participated in online user help forums before, getting signed up and started will be frustrating, but, once you succeed, using it will be extremely easy and a valuable asset so, stick with it and ask for help any time you need it.

I (and other forum members) will try to answer any questions posted on this forum at any time and that generally means you will get a response, if not an answer, within several hours.  Using the forum should significantly reduce the amount of note and will assure that, links, email addresses and other information will be available and accurate.

Privacy... Please know that any information such as email addresses obtained with respect to the LLI class will only be used for this class alone and will not be shared with anyone else.

While I use and endorse many products such as those offered by Google, I have no connection with any of the services or products that may be discussed during the eight weeks of class, nor am I compensated in any way by anyone other than LLi.

Any Questions??? 

Post them on the Silver Techies forum (or, if you need help getting started on the forum, EMail the Forum Moderators at "SilverTechies-Owner@YahooGroups.com" by clicking this link) and I, and others, will try to answer as soon as possible.

Expect to have fun while learning... and you will!
