Welcome, class.We will cover a lot of ground this year, as the number of computer applications and technology innovations keeps growing every day. Among the computer apps that we will become familiar with are:
MS Office - Word, Excel, Powerpoint, Outlook, and possibly Publisher if time permits
Google - GMail, Blogger, Keyword Search, Google Maps, Google Chrome Web Store Apps
Social Media - Facebook, Twitter, YouTube, LinkedIn, Tumblr, StumbleUpon
Marketing - a host of internet promotion blogs and affiliate sites like Clickbank.com
Video Production - Camtasia Studio
I encourage students to continually check this class blog site for new assignments and instructional files and links that I will update throughout the course.
I also invite and encourage all students to share their comments, suggestions and feedback with me as well as with others. You are encouraged to explore sites that will help us become more productive and to share your findings with the rest of us. So if you come across a blog, site or app that is helpful please let us know by sharing your comments on this blog.
Of course, be very careful, considerate and professional about what you say to others online. Digital info is a double-edged sword - it can really help your careers but it can also destroy them in a flash.
