How Can I Learn Computer Software Now To Help Me Adapt To School and On-The-Job Situations In The Future?

College Credit Course–2 College Credits

A course designed for the student with minimal keyboarding experience. The major objectives are to develop touch control of the keyboard with speed and accuracy through proper keyboarding techniques and to learn proper formatting of letters, reports, memorandums, documents using footnotes and endnotes, headers and footers, and other special reports. Introduction to Business Computer Applications I is where students use Microsoft Office 2016 to learn the following:

  • Demonstrate skill in the operation of the keyboard by the touch system.
  • Demonstrate improved levels of both speed and accuracy in keyboarding skills.
  • Develop speed and accuracy in both timings and production rates.
  • Apply word division guidelines correctly, as well as use punctuation, abbreviations, capitalization, and numbers appropriately.
  • Demonstrate correct formatting of business letters, tables, memorandums, and reports using footnotes and endnotes, headers and footers, and other special reports.

Here is what some students comments are about the class:
