Content and Overview
Noteboom Productions designed this course for beginners who are new to the Mac or existing Mac users upgrading from OS X Yosemite. Learning a new operating system can seem like a daunting task. We'll guide you through 66 videos in just over 5 hours, teaching you the basics of a Mac and its latest operating system, OS X El Capitan. In addition to lecturing, we demonstrate how to get around your Mac quickly, set system preferences, create and organize documents, install and delete applications, and tips on backing-up your Mac. You are encouraged to have OS X El Capitan installed on your Mac so you can follow along and try it yourself at the end of each lecture.
This course starts with the basics including OS X terminology and migrating from Windows. Once we've established the terminology we move on to getting around OS X El Capitan with the Finder, using the Dock, and using the Menu Bar. Then we go through some extensive lessons on setting up OS X default behaviors through System Preferences. When we have our Mac all set up the way we want it and we're comfortable with getting around, we move on to installing and uninstalling Apps and creating and working with documents. We also spend a little time going over the new features of El Capitan.
Students completing this course will have the basic knowledge to comfortably navigate their Mac using OS X El Capitan.
