All Things Google Lunch and Learn Series: Automating Tasks with Google Drive and IFTTT (If This Then That)

Friday, May 18, 2018

Online Registration Required

Because Blount County Public Library has received a Library Technology Training Grant, this series of Google Lunch and Learn classes is being offered to the public during 2018.  Online registration is required at no cost. For lunch options, you may bring a sack lunch or an optional $10 box lunch is available from the library’s Bookmark Café and lunch order options are on the registration form. The classes will be held in the library’s new Learning Lab, a stand-alone building on Cusick Street, across from the library’s outdoor sign. Participants who have Gmail accounts should bring their email address and password. Participants who do not have a Gmail account will create one at their first class. Participants should bring their library card. In some classes, participants will also learn how to use Lynda.com, a new leading online learning platform that helps anyone learn business, software, technology and creative skills to achieve their learning goals. A staff person will be at all classes to make sure that participants have an ecard to access Lynda.com for participants without library cards. Be sure to include email address on registration form. Each class is limited to 10 participants. Participants are invited to bring their personal laptops with wireless access to use in classes. Click here for Class title and synopsis.
