New Literacy: An Introduction To Computers
Program Description

Computers have become part of our daily lives--the number of computers is increasing so rapidly that experts cannot keep pace, and the demand for knowledgeable consumers is equally as great. Literacy today not only reflects one's ability to read, but one's ability to understand a computer system. This is an up-to-date survey of electronic data processing, computer hardware and software systems, and developments that will provide the basis for further advancements in information processing. The course is designed to provide a comprehensive look at the computer: what it is , what it can and cannot do, how it operates, how it may be instructed to solve problems.
