Course Description

Computers are part of our everyday world. Those who have never used one can be intimidated. Those who use one every day have often not been provided basic instructions. In this course, we take away the fear and mystery of the PC. We introduce the parts, terminology and basic skills everyone needs to know to be comfortable using a computer in a visual, easy-to-understand way.
