Students learn how to keyboard without looking at their fingers using the touch method in this one semester course. New skills are strengthened and speed is increased throughout the semester when students use a word processing program to create reports, personal and business letters, journals, and charts. Students are also exposed to spreadsheet, database, drawing, and painting programs which enhance creative and problem-solving skills learned in other classes.
