Introduction to Windows
This course provides information about Windows 95/98.  It starts with a description of the appearance of Windows 95/98 and how to control the look and feel of the system.  It then goes on to actually running a program.  Locating information on the system is important so My Computer, the Windows Explorer and the Find function will be addressed.  Several applets come standard with Windows 95/98 and each of these will be introduced.
Introduction to Microsoft Word
This course covers enough information about Windows 95/98 to allow the student to navigate the operating system and bring up applications such as Microsoft Word.  Several features of the operating system will be addressed in connection with using MS Word.  The student will be introduced to a very powerful (yet easy to use) word processing application, MS Word.  The use of different fonts and sizes, headers and footers, tables, spell checking, and other features will be covered.  By the end of this course, the student should be able to produce a professional looking business letter using a number of different features of MS Word.
Introduction to Microsoft Excel
This class is designed for students who want to enter and edit information into a spreadsheet; open, save and manage spreadsheets; and navigate spreadsheets.  In addition, students will learn how to perform calculations on spreadsheet data, manipulate data, format the contents of a spreadsheet, and prepare, setup and print a spreadsheet.  The primary exercise of this class will be the construction of a payroll spreadsheet.
Introduction to Computers
This class is designed for people who have no experience with computers.  The course provides step-by-step hands-on training in the use of a personal computer.  Students will be introduced to terms commonly in use with computers, the hardware and software components that make up a computer and the Windows operating system.  Although the student will be familiar with the computer by the end of this course, he/she will not be familiar with all aspects of the computer nor be proficient in using it.  This course should be considered a starting point for someone interested in computer.
