      Afternoon Class
The Monthly Afternoon Class covers a variety of topics related to both Mac and iOS devices. These are generally hands-on classes to help you better understand both the operating systems and the programs that run on them. This SIG meets on the fourth Friday of the month at the WSU Computer Room. These classes are free, but require reservations via our email list. Please subscribe to our email list above.

From time to time we record the audio and screen actions from presentations, or to illustrate answers to frequently asked questions. These screencasts can be a good source for video tutorials on Mac functions you may not be familiar with. To view these screencasts, please visit our Vimeo Gallery.
