    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    The professor was so knowledgeable about the computer and all it's components. The highlight of this course was the willingness of the professor to show how important computers are to each individual and the future of the world.

    Not too easy. Not too difficult.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend this class because I enjoyed the coursework. As an introduction class, it allows you to become comfortable with learning new material while expressing your creativity. I also enjoyed learning about all of the other students in the class and what their career goals were. This class allows students with different educational goals to come together and share their thoughts about the course through discussion boards.

    Course highlights:

    This course is a developmental introductory and required prerequisite for other advanced computer courses at HCC. Some highlights that I had included an introduction to Microsoft Access, which is a database tool, learning tips and tricks to enhance my Microsoft PowerPoint and Word skills, and discussing course work with fellow classmates.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Discussion boards are an important part in this course, especially if you are taking CGS 1000 online. Thorough and elaborate responses are a requirement and text message lingo is not acceptable, so it helps to practice getting into the habit of using clear, concise language. Online versions of this course also include teaching in the form of videos, since it is somewhat self-paced. I advise taking thorough notes to help pass chapter quizzes.

    Pretty easy, overall.

    Course Overview:

    I would recommend it because the teacher is very animated and explains clearly. The course itself helped me get a better understanding of computers and and their parts. It actually made me want to pursue a career in Computer Science and helped me decide my major. If a person is interested in Computers, this is definitely a course they should take.

    Course highlights:

    Some highlights of this course were the sections on hardware and how computers read information. I was previously unaware of how the hardware of a computer worked together to make a computer run. I learned that a hard drive interpreted the 1s and 0s of binary as turns on the disc. I also learned that multiple different forms of numbers (hexadecimal, decimal) could be converted into binary. I was also interested in the parts where we learned about the different operating systems.

    Hours per week:

    6-8 hours

    Advice for students:

    Do not fall behind and always turn in your assignments on time. If you fall behind on doing your homework your grade will suffer for it. If you aren't understanding something make sure you try to learn it the best you can because some of the information builds off of each other,
