Students are required to already have an understanding of traditional computer-based applications before beginning CSCI 109. These applications include word processing, basic spreadsheet use, basic database use, basic presentation software use, electronic mail, and accessing web resources via the Internet. The purpose of this course is to build on students' existing knowledge of using computer systems and pertinent applications. Students will increase their skills with the most popular computer applications such as word processing, spreadsheet, electronic mail, presentation software, and Internet. Computer literacy is presented through lectures, discussions, and readings on the computer process, the impact of computers on society, emerging technologies, and hardware and software purchasing decisions.
