Before doing this course your should get a good background of mobile phones by doing the Broadband for Seniors (BFS) free online courses on Mobile Devises, either introduction to Android or introduction to Ipad, depending on if you have a Android phone or Iphone.
This video show how to access the BFS online tutorials:

These are the notes for a Smart Phone course.
If you have plenty of download, I have put links to some videos I have found on the internet against this list of items:
In this course you may learn.
Most of the above can be learn from the Online tutorial on the “Introduction to Android” online tutorials on the Broadband for Seniors (BFS) web site. http://bfseniors.com.au/ ie http://www.bfseniorsonline.com.au/index.html
Here is a video of how to use the BFS online training:
These are free to use. You can get a User Name and Password by clicking on the Create Account button on the top right of that page, and filling in the requested information. Then go to the Mobile devises section and do the Introduction to Android or the Introduction to the Ipad course depending on which type of phone you have.
If you have an IPhone do the introduction to Ipad course. Ipads operate almost the same way as Iphones
Go to BFS website and do the Online Tutorial on the Ipad about terminology and then see if how many of the below questions you can answer.
Do the lesson on the BFS web site for The Android Home screen and then answer the following questions. If you can not answer the questions go through the lesson again to look for the answer to the question. The idea is for you to find the answer not to have to memorize it.
And many more. Can you think of any more? It could be said that whatever you can do with a computer you can do with a smart phone because a smart phone is a computer. Actually a smart phone can do more than a desktop computer because it is not tethered to a power lead and modern smart phones have more built it hardware than a desktop computer.
