Intro to Computers

In order to benefit from Module 1 – Manage Your Money & Tech, our students need to be familiar with computers or mobile technology even if they don’t use a computer frequently.

For students who want to get equipped with basic computer skills before starting Module 1, we have developed a new 3-month course “Intro to Computers” especially for them.
During this elective class, students will develop basic computer skills, learn about the different parts of a computer and how to use it, set up an email and they will get an introduction to Microsoft and Google tools.

Kindly see here to help you or your helper to assess if you can join directly Module 1:

  • Have you ever used a computer before?
  • Have you typed text on a computer before?
  • Have you ever searched for information on a computer or on your phone (via Google)?
  • Do you have an email address?
  • Are you confident that you can learn to use a computer quickly?

If you answered yes to one or two of these questions, you can start Module 1 directly, you don’ t need to register to the ‘Intro to Computers’ course.
