“How-To” Tutorials

I am in need of ideas from our readers! I will be developing a series of “how-to” videos which will be displayed on this blog. These “how-to” videos can be an alternative to attending one of our two hour classes. Granted it can’t replace a class with an instructor but I have hopes that we can help those who for whatever reason can’t attend our classes. These tutorials will not be very long so don’t expect to learn everything there is about a particular program or computer issue.

I need ideas on possible topics. Please email or comment to this blog with your suggestions.
