What helps expand other people’s horizons, boosts their well-being, or helps them maintain an active mind? What allows YOU to give back to your community and is an enjoyable and enriching experience for both you and them? The answer is...becoming an Adult Education instructor and sharing your knowledge, talent, and enthusiasm. If you are curious and want to learn more, please register for a one-on-one session (in person, or can be via Zoom) with Heidi, our Adult Education Director. There is no obligation to join our team, but we hope to tempt you with the opportunity!
Come learn how to use this cloud-based video conferencing platform which lets you attend classes virtually and meet with others either by video or audio-only or both! Zoom creates a way for in-person classes to still “meet” and enjoy the ability to connect with others. We will show you how to download the Zoom app and explore its basic features. Also, we will create a “Zoom meeting” so you can practice and gain confidence in using it. Some helpful resources will be provided. Bring your laptop, tablet, or phone (iOS or Android) to this class (you must know your username/password to access your account, please!) Or if you prefer, we will provide a device for you to use.

Scammers and schemers are organized, and they are actively targeting you. Learn about the tricks and tactics they use to gain your personal information and access to your finances. You will see they are VERY organized and VERY good at what they do. How do you or your elderly parent avoid becoming victims of their schemes? It all starts with gaining the knowledge and awareness of the practices to stay safe. What do you do if you have been breached by their schemes? In this information session, you will learn about common scenarios that are used to “get” your precious information, and, most importantly, you’ll learn how to spot them immediately, avoid falling into their traps, and take action if you realize you have been a victim. This class will present via Zoom, if necessary.
With classes and meetings now online, Zoom has become the most widely used web-based video conferencing tool, but it often does not get used to its full advantage. In this one night class we will take a deep dive into the Zoom platform to explore the advanced features it has to offer. We will cover how to change meeting control settings, how to share screens, how to use Zoom on different devices (iPhone, Android, MacBook, and PC’s), and much more. Come prepared with a basic knowledge of how to use Zoom and we will delve more deeply into the advanced features. This class may be presented via Zoom, if necessary, and our Adult Ed staff will assist.
