You, Your Computer and the Net (T171)
This course has now changed from when I studied it in 2000. Back then the first Module looked at the basics of computing. I believe that the short course TU170 now covers this element and the current T171 has a new module included on e-commerce.
Anybody who is not a total expert with a Computer, The Internet, the World Wide Web or Further Education study could certainly benefit from this course. As a foundation course it will give you skills that can be used in the workplace, at home and in your studying. No matter what your subject area, and that includes Arts, Sciences, Philosophy, Law and anything in between, I would recommend this course to you.
As well as learning the history of the PC and The Internet you will:
For TMA 1 I had to summarise two separate documents, a good way to gain skills in note taking. I then had to draw up a list of 4 points that I felt were important in groupworking online.
In TMA2 I wrote a letter to a friend about "Computing with Confidence" . Followed by a reflection on groupworking. Oh how I love reflecting ;o)
TMA 3 was my first attempt at full length written academic work since leaving school, I chose the title "The Impact of Personal Computers in the world of Small Business", and here's an extract not sure I like my design ideas from back then though!! As well as the essay we had to produce an essay plan and an additional written piece about our "own experience" in our chosen subject. As my job involved working on a computer all day for a small business I had plenty of fodder for this part.
TMA 4 Now a whole web report .... Wow!!
ECA ~ So "Who was the Father of the Internet" then? Oh joy of joys the reflection but then it's all over phew!!!!!!!!
