We are teaching a Windows 8 hands-on intro at the Escapade in Goshen in May – so, yes, we better have something by then! 🙂
Tell me more about how you’re using it. The book? the videos?
I can’t imagine that you need that material any more, so you’re helping others like you did with the class a couple years ago? Just when I’m thinking we don’t need to teach that basic stuff anymore, somebody (like you) tells me it’s still important. If that’s true, we should really get more serious about the basics … what do you think?
Well, that is my problem. I am not using Windows 8 very much or often. But people keep coming to me for help and I really need to quit faking it. With Windows 7 or Vista, I had used it enough that I have the basics down and can teach out of my head. We have used both the books and videos from the Boot Camp course as instructional material and guidance. I need / want some structured material so that I can walk these individuals down the correct path. Who knows, I may even start using my tablet more.
Did you see our Windows 8 Seminar handout? It’s just a short handout, not a “boot camp” style workbook, but maybe you’ll find it helpful.
Let us know.
And, I’ll let you know when we have more.
We prefer to teach the fun, mostly free, programs and apps of interest to travelers.

I don’t understand the emphasis on Windows 8, or 8.1. The operating system is the way to get to your browser or email or photo app, but needs to get out of the way. The operating system is not why people buy a computer.
