COS-101 Introduction to Computers

Introduction to Computers provides students with a broad, general introduction to hardware and software fundamentals, productivity software, graphics, digital media, multimedia, database applications, networking, the Internet, and security and privacy issues as well as an introduction to object-oriented programming using the Visual Basic programming language.

System Requirement: Windows XP operating system; personal Internet access; an Internet browser like Netscape 8.1 or Internet Explorer 5.5 or higher; Microsoft Visual Basic 2010 (Express Edition recommended); and word processing software.

Note: This course requires that you use Visual Studio 2012 software, which is a Windows-based product and will not run on Macs. You can run this software and other Windows software on your Mac using Apple's Boot Camp technology or third-party virtualization tools like Parallels or VMWare Fusion. These tools make it possible to run Mac OSX and a Windows operating system side by side. This solution will require a Windows license.
