INTRO TO COMPUTER APPS (Course #6695) In this 9-week course students will explore the world of computer applications. Students will be taken on a journey that starts with an introduction to touch-typing and ends with the basic knowledge needed to successfully navigate the ever-changing world of computer science. During the journey students will learn the basic skills needed to navigate a computer, efficiently utilize the internet, and operate programs such as Microsoft Word, and Microsoft PowerPoint, and Microsoft Excel. This will be done through daily discussions, examination of digital documents, and application of the knowledge gained throughout the course.
REAL WORLD COMPUTER APPLICATIONS (7th & 8th) (Course #7805) Real World Computer Applications puts the student in the driver’s seat. During this semester long course students will learn software skills which will be applied during the completion of a real-world business simulation.
