Computer Literacy and Your College Career

TCC students are a diverse bunch. Our students come in all ages and from all types of different backgrounds. Just as our student body is diverse, so are their computer skills. Some TCC students are computer programmers and build computers for fun. Others have yet to learn the basics of personal computing.

Computer skills are an increasingly important component of student success. College students today are expected to know how to use computers in order to communicate with professors and classmates, complete assignments, and do effective online research, among other tasks. Computer literacy plays a large role in information literacy these days, as more and more information comes to us in digital formats. Improving your computer skills can provide the added benefit of increasing your understanding of the world of information.

If you feel you might be a bit "behind the eight ball" when it comes to computer skills, don't despair--help is available. Take advantage of the resources on this page to boost your computer IQ.
