<p>Have you ever been in a situation when you just <em>knew</em> you could do something, but didn’t exactly know <em>how</em>? Or maybe you live pretty far from an Apple Store or other Mac training spot. Well, if you want one on one, personal training at home, I’m excited to announce a new type of training: Remote Training.</p>
Getting started is easy, and if you have a Mac, there’s nothing else you have to buy. You see, it already comes with an application called iChat. Most people use iChat for text and video chatting, but what some don’t know is that you can also screen share.
The only thing that’s needed is an AIM account (the networking service iChat uses to connect and find your friends.) Click on iChat in your Applications Folder and it will lead you through the process. You’ll be up and running in less than three minutes. Once online, click the small Plus button at the bottom of your buddy list, and add “themacinstructor” as a buddy. Oh, and be sure to say Hi!
To learn more about iChat, watch this video from Apple. Remote Training especially works well for existing Mac Instructor customers who are already familiar with my teaching style and have some experience using a Mac.
To view pricing, further instructions, and other services offered by the Mac Instructor, head over to the Remote Training Page.
