I was never able to send pictures on my phone and now that I can do it, I have done it many times. I never knew what all the icons were used for and feel more comfortable with them now. I have had many teachers over my lifetime and Jordan is a natural. I am much less afraid of the computer because of the class
You have brought us, seniors, into the 21st century. This class is clear, organized, and extremely informative. The instructors dedicate so much time to presenting each class. This has truly changed my life.
I learned not to be afraid of the computer…fearless I’m not! The more I learn, the more I see how much more I need to learn. I recently read in the Times, that children learn a language much easier if a new language is taught before the age of seven. For me, using the computer is a new language which is developing, and changing rapidly. It’s hard to play “catch-up” at my age, but you have enabled me to be more confident when using technology.
Because of this class, I find that I can get through the days and weeks. I enjoyed all the classes, particularly the class that covered the “Internet”. I found I moved around the computer faster. I want to thank Jordan for being so generous with his time and knowledge. He has been exemplary in providing a well organized and presented computer class.
You made something that seemed overwhelming and incomprehensible manageable to somebody my age. You have narrowed the generation gap between us and our children and grandchildren.
I am no longer afraid to click the buttons and try new things. I want to thank this class because it's so wonderful being with people who are younger than I.
This class has been a phenomenon in my life. I can't express how grateful I am for this experience. The instructors have become like heroes to me.
You have given me the confidence to not be so afraid that when I touch my iPhone, it won't blow up in front of my face.
