This single three-hour session is designed as a workshop divided into four key topic areas: iPad features, understanding your iPad screen, adding content and applications and finally, a discussion of the most popular applications for entertainment, communication and productivity. By the end of the session you will have a better understanding of the controls, the operating system and your key apps and you will no longer need to ask ‘however did they do that?’
