This is a course for people who want to understand more about how a computer and Internet work. This course will not teach specifics about one type of hardware or operating system, or of a specific application. It will instead concentrate on the architecture, standards and requirements that computers have to use to be able to interface with the internet and other computers.

Many times when a problem occurs it is not related to your specific application but may come from something on internet that has nothing to with your job, or by a key that you hit unintentionally. The instructor has been involved in the development and implementation of computers for more than fifty years and will use that knowledge to describe how the standards and architecture developed over that time. This should help you to understand why something happens and what the computer has to do in order to maintain its relationship to other computers and to the internet.

This course has never been taught in this environment before so it will develop as is needed to satisfy the students that we encounter. Your input will be used as the course proceeds and we will do everything.


This course will require a good understanding of a computer and its purpose, and a knowledge of the Internet. It also requires a desire and willingness to work to better understand how computers work.
