Social Media Basics

Google Slides for Slide Shows

Are you of the generation that didn’t grow up learning PowerPoint or Google Slides in school? If so, this introductory class on using Google Slides for slide shows may be of interest. Google Slides is similar to PowerPoint, but is free and included with a Google mail account. If you don’t have gmail, you’ll want to set up an account before this class.

In this two-part series, you’ll learn how to use the tool to create a photo slideshow of your past travels or create a presentation. We’ll teach you how to add your own photos or photos and graphics from the internet; add shapes and icons; change colors; build from scratch or use a template; add transitions; animate objects; embed on a website or blog; and collaborate in the cloud in real time. Bring your laptop computer for hands-on help.

The second class will focus on content and sharing what makes you smile. The third class will include step-by-step instructions on creating your own short videos. In the fourth session, we will share what we created, our challenges and successes with the tools, and talk about our favorite content creators, and how they keep us interested and engaged.

Digital Scrapbooking

Do you have hundreds of photos on your smartphone?  Thousands in a shoebox? Creating scrapbooks is a fun pastime that no longer needs to include multiple tools and glue guns. The Camarillo Health Care District will offer Digital Scrapbooking, a class that can help you turn your beloved photos into an actual book for your coffee table. This four-week series will discuss the different online companies (platforms) that make digital scrapbooking, how to upload your photos (easier than you think!), crop, arrange and create your pages (more fun thank you might imagine!), add creative layers and decoration to your pages, and order your book for yourself or for wonderful gifts! Make something that will become a part of your legacy handed down for generations. Bring your laptop computer or smartphone to follow along or watch and take notes to create a book at home on your own.
