[prMac.com] Toronto, Canada - Training development company Infinite Skills Inc has just released a new tutorial video series focusing on 10.7 Lion, Apple's newest version of its Mac OS. The 110 lesson course has been created to assist users who are completely new to the Mac environment as well as those who are upgrading from an older version of the operating system. The training is presented by Andy Anderson, who has authored over 17 books and conducted seminars around the world.
"Mac OS has a reputation as an excellent multimedia and design platform, and it all starts with the operating system's most basic capabilities," said Chris Johns, content specialist for Infinite Skills. "With this tutorial series, we're helping viewers grasp the powerful media and communication tools that come built in."
The lessons included in the Lion training course first focus on installation, offering specific guidance to users upgrading from OSX Snow Leopard or trying to migrate their previous data and settings onto a new machine. Next, instructor Anderson helps viewers use the Finder, the centerpiece of file navigation and management in the Apple environment. The course continues through launching applications using the dock and Lion launch pad, using the OSX Dashboard and widgets, searching system files and content with Spotlight, customizing overall system settings and more. These fundamentals-focused tutorials are targeted specifically toward users with little experience using the Mac operating system.
The next chapters in the training explore new features and controls specific to Lion. Anderson shows users how to get hands-on with gestures, the trackpad-based shortcuts that provide physical control over common system commands. Throughout the course, viewers will also learn network configuration, web browsing and email using the new versions of Safari and Mail, multimedia playback, tips for using Automator and Terminal and more.
"For users who really want to be productive on their Macs, it's absolutely important to understand the ins and outs of the OS first," said Colin Boyd, sales director at Infinite Skills. "Fortunately, there's now an affordable and truly effective way to learn Lion. Andy even goes into hidden features that more experienced users don't know about."
Author Andy Anderson is considered one of the leading Mac and Windows software trainers in the world, having written more than 17 books and conducted on-site training sessions for top corporations and government institutions, including Walt Disney and The White House. Learning OSX 10.7 Lion is the tenth tutorial video course he has taught for Infinite Skills, where he has become one of the company's best-selling expert authors.
