Using the Computer at Work. Project Visions2: Learning for Life Initiative.
Taylor, Mary Lou, Comp.
These materials were developed for a 20-hour class on computers in a cement manufacturing plant. (In the workplace, they were used in conjunction with Typing Tutor 6 software.) The course is intended for complete beginners who need to use computers on the job. Each of the four modules can be used alone. The document begins with a pretest and posttest. The first module gives an overview of computer concepts. Its appendices describe the following: uses of computers, computers in banking, operating systems, and programming languages. Module 2 addresses keyboarding; it includes two diagrams illustrating types of keyboards. Module 3 is a glossary of computer vocabulary. Module 4 discusses care and maintenance of personal computers.
