Notes and Special Changes
This course is being resurrected since there is a need for a more basic computer course for students who have never used a computer. This need was mentioned in online discussions and at the open forum held in fall 20 l O on the Computer and Information Literacy requirement. TRiO Director Roy Inouye supports this course, especially during the summer. Vice Chancellor of Student Affairs Lui Hokoana agreed that since the rigor of courses numbered above 100 should be preserved, this course will allow students taking development English courses to learn basic computer skills at a reasonable pace.
