Secrets of the Remote
Suggested Seminar Topics
Secrets of the Remote: Be Smarter Than Your Smart TV
OVERVIEW & PURPOSE: Smart TVs and Streaming Services
Many of us use our television remote control for a very limited range of operations: switch the TV on or off, adjust the volume, or change the channel. Or, if we’re a bit more advanced, switch to a different device input. This seminar is designed to demonstrate a surprising variety of functions one can perform using the TV remote, from modifying user settings to streaming a favorite movie, all from the comfort of a favorite easy chair. Note: we will not cover using the cable box or satellite dish remote in this session.
Vegas (Video) Calling: It’s The Next Best Thing to Being There
OVERVIEW & PURPOSE: Phone and Tablet Video Calling Apps
In the 1970s, Bell Telephone System convinced a large number of us to spend lots of money to stay in touch with faraway loved ones: “Long distance. It’s the next best thing to being there.” These days, there’s no need to pay for expensive long distance telephone calls to talk with our grandkids in Grand Rapids. We can even see their smiling faces when we tell them we love them. This seminar will demonstrate just how simple it is to use a smartphone or tablet computer to make and receive video calls.
Computer Virus Apocalypse: What ARE those little things?
OVERVIEW & PURPOSE: Email and Internet Security
Many of us struggle to know how best to be safe in our digital and online lives. We hear terrifying stories all the time on both local and national broadcast news shows. “$200 million more ransomware payouts in the first half of 2021 than in the entirety of 2020.” “FTC processed 14,086 email or social media identity theft reports in 2020.” Yikes! What can you do about it? This seminar focuses on the easiest ways to protect yourself and your family from hackers, phishing scams, and those scary “compromised URL” websites.
In the face of ever-diminishing resources and unholy deadlines, Dan Mosher could be counted on not only to find a way to make the improbable happen but to do so with a smile. His enthusiasm was almost as inspiring as his uncanny ability to find solutions to problems that threatened to delay or completely derail projects. Dan’s understanding of technical production and printing issues is an invaluable asset and he is an absolute joy to work with.
Content Strategist | Editorial Product Owner | Project Manager
I’ve had the pleasure of collaborating with Dan Mosher for the past 18 months as a vendor and he as my client. Dan looks at the task, process or request and is able to provide you with a solution as well as considering other scenarios that could arise. His big picture perspective allows all of us to make better decisions after his input. I consider Dan one of my life coaches and now seek his advice on internal processes. I enjoy working/collaborating with Dan and I look forward to many years of partnerships. Partnership is the way he deals with us even if we are a vendor to his company. His approach is professional and empowering to me and our team.
