Online Course: The Guide to macOS Sierra

The Guide to macOS Sierra is a complete course with more than 50 video tutorials, more than 4 hours of video instruction. It begins by showing you the basics of the desktop and then goes into detail about using the Finder, iTunes, Safari, Mail, TextEdit, Preview and other basic apps. Lots of tips, tricks and techniques.

Each tutorial clearly presents a topic and shows you how to use macOS Sierra. You can watch while trying out techniques for yourself. Presented by the host of the MacMost Now video podcast, the creator of hundreds of online video tutorials and the author of books on the Mac and iPad.

If you are familiar with the Mac App Store apps I used to do with each release of OS X, this is essentially the same concept, except as an online course instead of an app. As a course I can offer more videos at a higher quality. I can also answer questions and add additional videos easily, unlike with the app. The information in the course is the equivalent to a book you might buy on macOS: it contains a lot of getting-started information covering the basics, while also throwing in power-user tips and tricks. I have many videos labelled “New in Sierra,” but as Sierra builds upon the versions of OS X before it, much of what you will see isn’t necessarily new. I built this course as a way for existing Mac users to broaden their skills and for new Mac users to get up to speed fast.

    Hi. I bought your El Captain Video Guide sometime ago. How similar/different will your Sierra Online Course be? In other words, will it contains much of the same explanations. Thanks. Michel

    mhetu: Yes. See the third paragraph above. Sierra and El Capitan, being just one release from each other, are mostly the same. So the course is mostly the same. One difference is that I could include more video in an online course so there is more than 4 hours of video here, as opposed to about 3 hours in the old app. Also, of course, I am showing everything in Sierra, so you are seeing it in the latest interface. And, of course, there are the new features in Sierra. Look at the course curriculum list and you’ll see each video and a short description.

    Would a course participant’s knowledge of the course content be tested in any way and if so, how?

    Do i need to go through Udemy to buy the course, it used to be where we would get it directly from you and easy to find when iconed and placed on desktop?

    9/22/16 @ 1:19 pm

    Jim: No. I don’t do any testing or assignments or anything like that. I don’t think this sort of course needs that.

    Gary: Yes, you need to go through Udemy. The course is hosted there. The old model I tried, that of a Mac App sold through Apple, had many problems. Every minute of video made the app larger and more difficult to access, the course was very difficult to update or fix problems, and Apple took a big cut of the price, just to name a few issues.

    Can the course be viewed from other computers, eg. my work computer and home computer. I am asking so that I can know that I can purchase your program at work and use it at work and home. When I bought the last ones through the App Store, I could do both.

    9/27/16 @ 1:47 pm

    Rick: Yes. Just log in to your Udemy account from any computer and all of your Udemy courses will be there and your account settings and status, etc.

    I just paid $20. for the course, but I did it on my iphone. Can I transfer it over to my Mac? Thank You.

    Jeanette: It is an online course — a website. You can just log into your Udemy account on your Mac and view the videos there.

    I really like getting the MacMost Newsletter. Is everything in the course also going to be (or already has been) in the Newsletter? Or is there content that will ONLY be in the course?

    9/30/16 @ 10:42 am

    Barry: All of the videos in the course are ONLY in the course. It includes 50+ new videos which are not at nor are they in the newsletter. I will be discussing some similar things in the podcast (the videos you see on the site and in the newsletter) in the future of course. Not those particular videos are just for the course. Take a look at it — you can see the table of contents and even preview a few of them before deciding to sign up.
