Are you looking for a great Christmas gift for your parents? This online course might be just what you are looking for!

What is this Android From Zero course?

It is a long (8+ hours) online video course that teaches how to USE an Android mobile device, for example, a tablet or a smartphone.

This course assumes no prior knowledge, and it starts from zero.

Why does it exist?

We, the younger generation, often take things for granted. We know how to scroll, save a contact number, and open or install applications. Also, we know what applications are.

But many people have no idea about all this stuff because they did not born with a smartphone in their hands.

Those people need someone who’ll take the time and lead them step by step, helping them understand this mobile world. They often have no one who would take the time and effort to get them up to speed.

When they have some problems, they might get a quick fix, but they have no chance of understanding how their son fixed that problem on their phone.

It is a great gift

Buy this course for your parents or grandparents if you want to help them use their mobile devices.

This course will give them the knowledge of fishing, not just some fish that will not last. 

Because this is an online video course, they can watch it as many times as they want and exercise the concepts.
