This course is designed to help you increase skills on your home computer, including both application programs and standalone apps (for Windows 8 users). Through hands-on guidance and training you should gain comfort & proficiency in modern computing techniques. Especially important will be time spent on formatting and saving documents, as well as organizing your files into folders, using external storage and “flash” drives, and delving deeper into more efficient use of Internet and email programs

Classroom time will be an interactive, collaborative learning experience, while students are expected to practice on-their-own between class sessions and bring questions for class discussion in the next session.


This is not a basic computer course for beginners. Students should come with knowledge of the computer keyboard, some typing skills, and mouse skills that include left click and right click, as well as drag and drop. They should have at least elementary knowledge of word processing and the Internet. To be successful in this course, you must have completed a Level 1 Computer College course, or have otherwise developed equivalent computer skills. Without basic computer skills you will have difficulty in learning the material covered in this course.
