In order to get started working with Glass, there are a few things that you should know before continuing. Glass is a lot easier to work with if you're familiar with Android and how to work with Android phones. In addition, if you're a Google customer that uses Gmail, Google apps, Google Play. And are familiar with how to work with Contacts and other parts of your Google account. Working with Glass will be a bit easier. In this course, you don't have to actually own a Glass device. We'll show you the screens and how you interact with the interface in the course.
So following along without Glass is perfectly fine. In fact, it'll make getting started with Glass a lot easier. I found that when I got Glass, it was a bit confusing at first. And this course will make things a lot easier for you to understand when you get one. If you do have Glass, I recommend that you have an iPhone or Android smartphone to follow along with some of the examples. You will also need to have a Google account. And you'll need to access the Google MyGlass website to get things set up. This course doesn't have any materials outside of the videos themselves.
So if you're all ready, let's go ahead and get started.
This course explains how to get your Google Glass configured, connected, and working for you. After you get Glass set up on the Internet, Doug Winnie goes through how to navigate the voice and gesture-based interface, install apps to extend its capabilities, and use Glass in real-world scenarios: navigating a city, accepting calls, and taking photos and video.
