The Basic Computing course begins with fundamental skills, such as turning on and logging into ADSB computers, and using the mouse and keyboard.  Students then learn to navigate the Windows environment, performing such tasks as recognizing different parts of the computer ‘desktop,’ opening and closing programs, and working within program windows.  The following weeks of this course are spent using the Internet to search for websites, locate images, and look up other information, such as online maps, telephone directories and general conversions.  Students may also use the Internet to locate personal interest websites, perform job searches, buying and selling, and plan vacations.
