CO176 Introduction to Computer Concepts & Applications In the Introduction to Computers concepts and applications course, students will learn the most important topics of basic computers skills and the Microsoft Office software. No prior computer experience is assumed. Students are first presented with an overview of computer concepts and the computer system, which include hardware, software, computer ethics, and networking and telecommunications. An introduction to the Windows operating system is covered. Once you are comfortable with the basics of computing and operation systems, we will briefly cover Internet concepts and WWW browsing skills. Next, you will learn the Office 2016 or 365 programs, followed by sets of tutorials that teach the basics of Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint. Students will “learn by doing” as they complete realistic, step-by-step tutorials and Case problems, at the computer.
