How to Navigate the Lifelong Learning Registration Site and Create a Gmail Account

One of the things we routinely hear in Lifelong Learning is that our students aren’t quite sure how to navigate our registration site, so we enlisted the help of our computer expert, Randy, to create a workshop for you!  Randy will walk you through the online registration and help you set up Google’s free email service called Gmail. Gmail is the most popular email service for good reason, as it is among the best. Gmail is modern, integrates well with other Google services, and is effective at blocking spam. NOTE: Class is in the lower level of the Ohm Bldg.
