Mac OS X


- Hi, my name is Chad Chelius. I'm a trainer, author, consultant, and Mac user for more than 20 years. I'm super excited about this workshop because the Mac has always been an invaluable tool for me. Mountain Lion, the latest operating system from Apple, allows me to do more things on my computer in less time than ever before. In this workshop, I'll walk you through many of the new features of Mountain Lion. Whether you're a new Mac user or a veteran Mac user, by the end of this workshop you'll learn what Mountain Lion is and what it means to you.

You'll also learn how to purchase and install Mountain Lion. How to set up user accounts for other people in your household. And how to protect young Mac users by applying parental controls to those accounts. You'll learn more recent additions to OS 10 like Launchpad and Mission Control. And you'll learn about the Notifications Center. Messages, Reminders, and Notes. I'll even show you the new dictation feature that allows you to talk to your Mac and have it dictate what you speak onto a page or email. I've set up the videos in this workshop in a linear fashion so that you can dive in where your skill level fits.

I hope you find this course useful and that you have fun getting to know the latest Mac operating system, Mountain Lion.
