Topics Covered

In Lesson 1, we're going to delve into computer hardware. Initially, we'll explore the importance of understanding this aspect. You might wonder, why bother with computer hardware? After all, you simply turn on the computer and it functions, correct? The necessity of comprehending its internal workings will be our starting point. We'll then proceed to cover fundamental definitions, the comparison between PC and Mac, and an examination of the various system components housed within your computer.

In Lesson 2, we continue our exploration of computer hardware. Our focus will be on discussing data storage, peripherals, and power protection.

In Lesson 3, we'll delve into keyboard usage. We'll explore the various keys on the keyboard, including indicator lights, and gain a comprehensive understanding of their functions. Furthermore, we'll master the practical application of most of these keys.

In Lesson 4, we're going to delve into the world of mouse usage and navigation. We'll cover the fundamental techniques for effectively maneuvering the mouse across the screen. From basic clicking and scrolling to more advanced functions, you'll gain the skills needed to navigate seamlessly through various tasks and applications.

In Lesson 5, we'll dive into what I've coined "Rick's Tips." This segment is dedicated to exploring essential aspects such as ergonomics, potential computer caveats, and crucial points to keep in mind. Whether you're a seasoned user or just starting out, these insights will prove invaluable in ensuring your computing experience remains comfortable, efficient, and trouble-free. Additionally, we'll provide helpful tips tailored for newcomers, affectionately known as "noobs." This term is used endearingly and is meant to provide guidance to those taking their first steps in the digital world.
