In this course you will learn how to search for items you may want to buy on the Internet, how to find the websites that sell them, and how to buy safely from the merchants that sell on the Internet. We will explore how to search for items on the Internet, how to limit or change searches to get good results, how to browse websites to look at the products they are selling, and how to make a purchase when you are sure you have found what you want. We will talk about Internet security and safe ways to buy on the Internet. Part of each class will be devoted to hands-on practice on the Internet. There will be time for questions and tips for successful shopping.


In order to take the course you should have certain basic computer skills (from prior courses or prior experience). Without these skills you could be uncomfortable in the class. Specifically, you should know how to comfortably use a mouse to point, left click (and maybe right click), drag and drop. You should have an email account ant be comfortable using it.

Students should have access to a computer of their own at home (for practice purposes), have an E-Mail account, and some basic knowledge of how to use E-Mail and how to reach the Internet using a browser. Students using Mac computers are welcome but the computers available in the class will not include a MAC so students may need a basic familiarity with PCs.
