Getting more from Android Tablets  

This course covers both Android Tablets and Smart Phones.

Android Tablets are made by many different manufacturers with different superficial features, but they all have common core features. They look different, but underneath the skin behave in a similar way.  This introduction to Android Tablets and Phones will help students become familiar with the useful applications (apps) installed, and give them confidence to install other useful apps.

Course Objectives

Our aim is to give a comprehensive summary to some of your Android's features.  

This is a hands-on and practical workshop to help you get the best out of it, so that you can browse the Internet and send/receive emails, confidently install apps, use the cameras for photos and video, and store data and pictures in "The Cloud". The course will also deal with security so that you can keep you and your device safe from scams and malware.

A workbook is provided containing exercises to give hands-on experience and general information. This is yours to keep.


This course is suitable for those who have attended the Starting off with Android Tablets course, or who already have some experience with the Internet and email, either using a Tablet, or on another computer.   

When booking to come on this course please tell us the make and model of your tablet - this will help the tutor.  

Please bring your Android tablet or smart phone along with you, ideally with a microSD card already installed so that it has extra storage space. Please bring details of your email address and password if you you haven’t already set up your tablet to send/receive emails.
