Introductory Windows for Optimized Workflows (CSSO 010)

We work with computers on a daily basis, and rely on its functions and features to store and organize important information, help us systematize our workflows, and increase our capacities. Whether you are working on a larger project on your own, or collaborating with others, computer literacy is vital to productivity. Windows continues to be the primary operating system for industry and business and this introductory level course is a great place to start if you have never established systems for working, or are not familiar with naming conventions and keyboard shortcuts in Windows. Through a variety of activities and assignments, you will gain a deeper understanding of the technology, learn how a computer works and how they think, how to use some built-in features of Windows to your advantage, and some best practices when working on large projects or with many files.

Upon successfully completing this course, students will receive a digital skills badge through Accredible, a digital credentialing service. To opt-out of receiving a digital badge for CS courses, please unsubscribe here.
