Courses - Microsoft Windows 101
Description: Introduction to Computers
Versions: Applicable to all PC users
Pre-Requisites: None
Running Time: 51 minutes
Free Demo: Lesson #4: Hardware, Part 1
 
This is the perfect beginner course for the student who needs to learn how to use a computer from step one. If you have never used a computer before, or have very limited working knowledge of a computer, this is the course for you.

We assume nothing in this course. We start out by going over some basic definitions. We discuss the difference between hardware and software. We teach you what most of the popular computer industry terms mean (like megabytes, gigabytes, and so on). We talk about all the different kinds of computer components, like hard drives, memory, and motherboards.

We talk about keyboards, what all of the keys on the keyboard do, and how to use them properly. We go over topics such as how to properly hold a mouse, how to click, double-click, and click-n-drag.

We talk about software, the different kinds of software applications that are available. We discuss ergonomics, and how to prevent workplace injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome. We discuss some of the caveats - what to do and not to do to your computer! We also teach you how to properly shut your computer down.

If you are an absolute computer novice, or you have been using a computer for a little while and would like to learn more about the inner workings of a PC, plus pick up some tips and tricks for proper computer usage, then this course is for you.
