    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    If it's been a while since you've been in school, or you don't understand how to use Word or PowerPoint, this is a great place to start. This intro course instructs you on finding ways to make learning easier on yourself, by figuring out the best time and places for you to study. It helps you determine the type of learner that you are, so that learning later can be simplified by choosing to watch a video over reading a book, for example. There's a lot of good information to get you going in Microsoft Word and PowerPoint, with instructions on how to find more help in working those programs later on.

    Course highlights:

    Since being in this course, I learned that I have retained a lot of my knowledge about scheduling time for myself to study, and basic spelling and grammar rules. One of the highlights of this course, for myself, would be to learn that I am a visual learner. For years, I had assumed that I was a tactile (hands-on) learner, but thanks to our writing assignment in week 3, I discovered that I rely a lot on visual aids. Whether it's from watching a video, or recalling something that I specifically read or saw in a textbook, or giving visual cues when I give someone directions, those are all aspects of a visual learner.

    Hours per week:

    9-11 hours

    Advice for students:

    Practice writing in Microsoft Word. Spell checker can assist you in proofreading your work before submission to the Discussion Board, and can catch all of your (or at least, most) writing errors. Read the textbook, and actually apply what you are learning to your life. Managing to be flexible with all of life's demands, and prioritizing which tasks require more time or focus, will not only help you in this course, but also future courses, after graduation, at work, and in life.

    Do not take this course lightly. I advise you to follow the calendar that it suggests.
