This 2 session course teaches how to use Gmail®, a Google provided web-based email system. It covers sending and receiving email with attachments, managing lists of email addresses, and using task lists. Graduates of this course should be able to use email on a personal computer productively at home. This course is two weeks long with one session per week. The price of this course is $20.00, payable at the time of registration.
Please Note: There are two special requirements for this course:
First, practice is very important in learning how to use a computer. You must have a Windows computer to practice on between classroom sessions.
Second, normally, Introduction to Computers must be completed before taking this course. However, If you can answer “YES” to all of the following five questions, you can go directly into this course.
1. Do you have a Microsoft Windows computer at home?
2. Are you comfortable using a computer keyboard and mouse or other pointing device?
3. Do you know how to use the Windows Start menu?
4. Can you manage multiple open windows?
5. Can you use an Internet Browser?
If you answer “NO” to any of these questions, you should take Introduction to Computers 1 before taking this Gmail course. If you are not sure, come to our Open House any Monday between noon and 3:00 PM and our volunteers will help you decide.

Joe Malin, Barbara Mencik, Larry Feldman (Instructor).
Gary and Sheila Bigel, are moving from Orlando and will no longer be part of Seniors Now. We will miss them terribly as an organization as they have both contributed so much to our organization in countless ways for over a decade. The hundreds of students they have both taught in many computer related subjects will also be forever grateful to them.
We had a get together and farewell for them both at the Marks Street Senior Recreation Complex on Tuesday 23rd February 2016 in the Maple Room.
Your comments are welcome here
, please find the time to show your appreciation to them both.
