INLS261/461 will focus on concepts and the tools needed to communicate your information to users.
We will start from the baseline of the North Carolina high school computer skills requirement and build from there. To that end, in INLS261/461 we will explore some basic concepts related to how standards connect computers using various versions of software and hardware. We will spend quite a bit of time gaining practical experience with several Internet tools and resources.
We will also introduce concepts and practice skills germane to effective use of the power built into word processing, spreadsheet, relational database management, and presentation graphics software. Although we may use either the current Open Office or the current Microsoft Office suites of applications for many tasks, the basic concepts should provide you with skills that will enable you to be comfortable with other similar packages.
