Instructor: Renee Dryg

Course Description:
This class gives you the opportunity to obtain valuable educational skills.
You will learn how to type. You will become familiar with several software applications including Microsoft Office, and Dreamweaver. While the main objective of the course is to develop these computer skills, the content of your projects will come from Academic and Art assignments. You will develop online Projects, Presentations, and Portfolios.

Course Goals:
This class will give you computer skills in four areas:
1. Word processing: typing and formatting documents
2. Data processing with spreadsheets: tables, graphs, and algebra
3. Digital presentation: Powerpoint slideshows, Photoshop, and iMovie
4. Web page design: your Final Project will be a Website of your class work

Grading Policy:
Your grade in this class will be calculated from the completed assignments that are put into the Hand In folder located in your user account.
You may choose to print some assignments to turn in to your teachers but those papers will not be used for grading in this class. All work must be handed in through the computer.
