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.
Explanation of Hotsync.
Explanation of program names that are displayed when going "HOME" and which ones are most important and how to get these programs from other handheld users if beamable and if not how to get them from the net. I'm still not comfortable with fling, palmreader, the other program that updates webpages automatically when you hotsync. KEVIN MORROW
I think one of the most helpful things would be to give them time to explore and try out some things - while help is there. It's kind of like the SmartBoard, the more you use it the more comfortable you become with it. I don't think we want to overwhelm them by showing too many apps in one night - maybe just the basic/easy-to-use ones.
The topics Kevin covered are great! I know they have been introduced to us, but I am not comfortable to teach these skills.
Thanx. Sheilla Dea
