Introduction to Microcomputers: A Competency-Based Approach. Instructor's Manual, Self-Paced Study Guide, and Student Exercise Manual.
Lutz, Thomas; And Others
Delaware County Community College's (DCCC's) course, "Introduction to Microcomputers," was designed to develop the basic level of computer competency necessary to enter the college's microcomputer technology programs. Three manuals were developed for the course: an instructor's manual, a self-paced study guide for students, and a student exercise manual. The instructor's manual presents notes for the teacher along with the corresponding pages of the student exercise manual. Both the instructor and student manuals cover the following topics: group introductions, course goals, the IBM PC keyboard, care of diskettes, the functional structure of computers, software, the evolution of computers, computer categories, the operating system, home activity, disk operating system commands, telecommunications, DCCC's lab network, spreadsheets, database programs, mainframe computers, programming languages, sample programs, and printer styles. The self-paced study guide offers a list of materials in several modes (i.e., required and alternative texts, software, audiotapes, videotapes, and slides) that can be used to develop specific computer competencies.
