Managing Your Apple ID

If you are attending one of my courses, I ask that you know your Apple ID & password before the first class. That seems obvious, right? Well, I am always surprised by the number of attendees who have no idea what their Apple ID and password are! Often that is because the iPad or iPhone was a gift and the kind giver did all the setup to make it easier for the recipient…. not a good idea. Especially with “mature” iPad and iPhone users, our younger family members think we are too old to do this stuff. WRONG!! If you are going to use the device, you need to know how to add apps, download and install updates, and generally keep your Apple device in tip-top shape.

Apple support is a great resource, and they have provided a page for those who have challenges with the Apple ID. Here is it so you don’t have to go look it up!

I look forward to seeing you in the first class with your Apple ID, Password, and pass code (if you have one) ready at hand so we can spend our time on the FUN STUFF!

It’s been a while since I’ve offered a class on using the iPad. Not many people were registering for my classes, and I was getting much busier at my other position as Technology Coordinator at Keller Williams Realty. 2017 is a new year, for sure! I’ve now “retired” from my Keller Williams staff position and the Adult Enrichment Program has come to life at Craven Community College. Both are welcome updates in my life!

I was asked to bring back the iPad class and add another on Mastering Your iPhone. The iPad class is offered in February in New Bern and March in Havelock. I have only one iPhone class – we’ll see how it is received. It will be in March in New Bern.

If you would like to register for either class, please visit the Adult Enrichment Program website at

I hope to see you there!

Welcome to your Resource Site!

Welcome to the “handouts” source for the 2017 Mastering Your iPad and Mastering Your iPhone Adult Enrichment Program classes at Craven Community College. This is a space to ask questions and find the resources mentioned in class. After each session, I will put all of the links and apps I mention here in this space. I hope you’ll take advantage of this resource!

There’s no need to write everything down during class. One of the joys of the iPad is that you can have everything in one place, accessible where ever you happen to be! I went to a conference recently and didn’t take a pen out of my handbag until the 4th day – and that was because someone needed my signature! You will learn that I LOVE being paperless.
