About FreeMacLessons.com
   
   
     

My parents, both of whom are retired, are Mac users and have been for about 6 or 7 years now. When I first encouraged them to switch from PC to Mac they were hesitant. They were both concerned about learning something new, and for good reason considering their computer skills were basic to say the least.


When they finally did make the switch, I encouraged them to take the free classes offered at the Apple Store (which is only a mile and a half from their house) to give them a basic understanding of the Mac. They never went! Instead, they would call me with their questions.


After a while, and many phone calls later, I realized a few things. First off, my parents kept asking the same questions over and over. Secondly, they still didn’t have a grasp of the basics of their computer. A typical phone call to me would include something like this:


Me: Click on the desktop.
Mom: What’s the desktop?


At that point I realized that my parents really needed help understanding their computer. I knew they needed something that was easily accessible, simple to understand and something they could refer to as many times as needed. And this is how FreeMacLessons.com was born!
