Planning for Palm Basics Training Night
I'll start the basic plan for the session:
- Power On/Off
- Navigation into apps and back home
- Notepad and beam notes
- Three ways to input text: Grafitti, wireless keyboards, and on-screen keyboard
- Beam apps
- Reset options
What else do we need to make sure we cover before Mike Curtis comes? What things do you think are most helpful in making you feel like a confident handheld user in a short amount of time? Share your ideas by posting comments to this blog.
To access additional information about Quizzler after tonight's exploration of the app and quiz-making possibilities, visit our "Handling Handhelds" website and click on links. This should help it make more sense.
