Smartphones for Dummies will be the topic of a new class offered by the Business and Community Education department at North Platte Community College.
The purpose of the class is to eliminate any anxiety or confusion that could accompany the use of a smartphone, which is a mobile phone that performs the functions of a computer.
Typically, the devices have a touchscreen interface, Internet access and an operating system capable of running downloaded applications. Learning to operate them isn't always an easy task.
Those who attend the Smartphones for Dummies class will learn how to master common features and navigate apps, voice command and more. Information about purchasing and upgrading smartphones will also be provided.
Participants are asked to take a smartphone or tablet to class with them as well as any email addresses or passwords associated with the device.
There are two class times available - Nov. 19 or Nov. 26, both from 6-7:30 p.m.
Marcia Gibson is the instructor for the class, which will meet in Room 131 of the McDonald-Belton Building on the NPCC South Campus, 601 W. State Farm Rd.
The fee is $19. Registration can be done online at https://bceregister.mpcc.edu, or by calling 535-3614.
