Residents of The Villages are Welcome to stop in and get help or training on anything Apple makes!

The Original Apple Help Meeting!

We have been helping residents with Apple products with one-on-one meetings for over 10 years! MUD started January 2009 by Tony Cottell. Thanks for the great idea!

UnknownFree Access to Lynda.com!

LadyLakelogoIf you live in Lady Lake and have a library card for the Lady Lake Library (you can purchase one for $20/yr if you live outside Lady Lake- hint hint), you now have access to Lynda.com! The is huge!

Lynda.com is an online education company offering thousands of video courses in software, creative, and business skills. Founded in 1995, the company produces video tutorials taught by industry experts.

This normally costs $25/month and it is free for Lady Lake residents! You just need to get a library card (takes 4 minutes 37 seconds) if you don't have one and wait a couple of days for the data to reach Lynda.com.

MUD (Mac Users Drop-in)

This site is the idea of MUD founder Tony Cottell.  He wants new Apple (Macintosh & iOS) users to be able to learn the Apple simply and easily. No fancy books, no hard-to-follow videos, just Apple users helping Apple users.

How to get the Most out of a Help Session

  1. Know your Resident ID number AND your 4-digit golf PIN number. (Both are necessary to connect to the internet)
  2. Know the User Names and Passwords for all of your Apple accounts (often all the same) and for any accounts or applications you may need help with (Gmail, 1Password, web sites, encrypted files or disks, etc.)
  3. Bring the device (Computer, iPad, iPhone, etc.) with you the help session. Most often, we can’t help if can’t see and work on the device.
