Windows 8 & Computer Basics (EDP937)

This course is for the beginning computer user who has very little computer experience and is looking for guidance on how to navigate the Windows 8 environment. There are many new features in Windows 8 that are different from the traditional operating systems and they can be difficult to learn on your own. Along with becoming familiar with computer terminology and the fundamentals of computer functions, you will gain the skills needed to use applications in the Windows 8 operating system. Learn how to navigate the totally new Start Screen, download apps to your computer, and use the new Charms Bar. Discover how SkyDrive will allow you to make your files and pictures accessible to other computers and to selected family and friends. You will learn the skills necessary to make your computer work for you, rather than the other way around! Please note: Touchscreen laptops will be used in this course, but students are welcome to bring their own Windows 8 laptop or tablet to class.
