This light-hearted independent study course will cover two areas we all need to be more competent and confident in the world of computers and online learning: 1) Computer basics, and 2) Skills for online learning success. The course is designed for you to complete as a whole, or to pick and choose the areas you feel you need the most help. Self-assessments will help you identify the areas you need to focus on, and learning activities throughout the course will help you practice both your computer skills, and your learning skills as you use the computer to learn about learning using the computer to learn.
