Welcome to a new semester at Daystar University. The students in Introduction to Computers will be using computers in their everyday activities and projects. We will be covering four major areas: Hardware, Network, Security & Internet, and Applications. The students will acquire the basics of the Windows system so that they will be able to navigate with ease through the various
applications they will be using this year. Microsoft Office contains word processing, spreadsheet, and presentation applications-software that will be critical for school and career success. All the
computers in the class have Internet access. For many of their projects, the students will be working in collaborative groups. Students will be working side-by-side to complete exercises and produce final projects. Our students will not only gain individual skills, but they will learn to combine their talents and skills with the talents and skills of their fellow students to produce these projects. I will give our young people guidelines that will enable them to work successfully in their groups.
