I wanted to establish review of iPad Pete’s iPad video lesson. As some people might wonder, why do you need an expalnatory video lesson for iPad? Isn’t it all individual efforts? , I’ve known that the answer to the last question is definitely no. I’ve known that a well performed lesson which includes the use of hands on practicing really is worth the time. Majority of people these days use only a small pieces of the abilities in their iPad and many people are trying to use it the hard way by their own hands. This is very time wasting and not useful at all. On the other side I can only explain a small number of lessons per year due to very tight time schedule at the Assistive Technology Center. I was trying to make a video lesson course myself to save the wasted time, when I suddenly thought in Pete’s iPad video lesson. I’m usually has a very skeptical, and I said to my self that this could be a fraud. Well I insisted to try it out, unluckily for me I found it to be a very valuable and useful video lesson. The course are consisted of logical levels and today they reached more than 100 videos. This makes it more easier to reach what you are searching for. One of the videos teaching you how to set the password settings is actually free, so if you pleased press the picture below to have a look at the example video at the end of iPad Pete’s webpage
The course has a twelve modules:
1 – All you need to know About Your iPad
2 – Web Tips and puzzles
3 – further details About Mail
4 – Reading on Your device
5 – App Fun & creativity
6 – Listen to Music & other apps
7 – arranging Your Photos
8 – Watch Video on Your device
9 – control Your Contacts
10 – plan Your Schedule
11 – reach Your destination with Maps
12 – Writing with Your device
Module 1 : explain to you the introduction to the device and an general overview of the main components. This in it self is what I might consider to be an introductory course explaining what most people would have to know in the beginner level course.
Module 2: explain to you you a lot of accurate advices and tricks that really are helpful and save time when using your device online.
Module 3: is reaching deeply into everything about e-mail on your device, most parts of this level is useful even when dealing with a Mac or PC too.
Module 4: is mostly about dealing with your device for reading all kinds of written text, how to modifying readability, e-books, papers, web-pages etc.
Module 5: explain you everything you need to increase your creativity with your device and it also explains to you the introduction to some funny apps.
Module 6: If you love to listen to music on your device this module is certainly yours! It shows you lots of examples on how to operate, download, play and shows you tips about settings also.
Module 7: arrenging photos is always useful task on an iPad or any other device where you are organizing photos. This level is going to require a small modification with iPad2, luckily for you iPad Pete is modifying his videos and adding new ones quite frequently at no further cost. Actually I didn`t know this when I brought the course, but it makes me feel with really happiness to know that for iPad 2 and probably for iPad 3 too the lessons will be updated and enable people with much more value than a solid lessons bought on a DVD or a book.
Module 8: This level explains you everything you need in order to turn your device into a movie playing machine, from a more easier steps to more advanced options, useful apps and formats. Connect your device to other devices and use the most full power of sound and video!
Module 9: explains you in easy steps how to control your contacts, this is necessary to all the device users.
Module 10: planning your schedule explains you how the device can become the most necessary and personal device you own. Sync with other devices like Mac, iphone and PC!
Module 11: reach Your destination with Maps are really great, maps on the device is magnificent. If you want to use it when you are in your car or on foot finding exactly the places you are searching for and all the details about the places where you want to find. It really offers you a lot much more than the usual GPS device. Personally I think this is the best level so far.
Module 12: Writing with Your device this is hopefully not the major reason why you brought your device, this level shows you how you can change iPad into a useful device for writing notes, e-mails, text of almost any thing. Use the touch keyboard, but really if you are going to write a book or a long article you should buy a keyboard to your device or perhaps even better, use another device as a Mac or PC. The device is wonderful for many reasons, however writing long texts is not one of them.
I strongly recommend this course to everyone who need to learn more about this device iPad / iPad2 and how to get the most use out of it.
