Not everyone has had the opportunity to grow up with computers. This course is for those who have very little or no knowledge on how to use a computer or the internet and want to understand and enjoy the benefits they offer.
Digital literacy has become much more than the ability to handle computers - just like traditional literacy and numeracy, it comprises a set of basic skills which include the use and production of digital media, information processing and retrieval, participation in social networks for creation and sharing of knowledge, and a wide range of professional computing skills.
We will take you step-by-step through the very basics like using a mouse and a keyboard, working with files and folders, searching the internet and sending emails. We will cover the basics of how to use office productivity applications, such as Word and Excel.
To help you practise these new skills, a series of exercises will be done in class alongside your instructor. As your confidence grows, you will be able to download files from the internet and save information to a removable storage device or USB.
- Computer basics will include how to identify the main parts of a computer, how to use a keyboard and mouse and common computer terminology. Identify the components of a modern Windows interface, manage files and folders in Windows Explorer, and perform basic file operations.
- In ‘The Internet, Cloud Services, and the World Wide Web’ section, you will cover topics like using Cloud Services, WWW (World Wide Web), Email and saving files. You will also learn how to stay safe online following the guidelines set by the Australian Cyber Security Centre.
- Introduction to productivity applications includes Microsoft Word and Microsoft Excel.

Working full-time, I needed a flexible course that could fit into my busy schedule. I enrolled part-time into TAFE Queensland Gold Coast's Diploma of Marketing which proved to be the perfect balance for my restrictive lifestyle. I gained confidence in knowing that the valuable skills I have learnt in class can now be put into practice within my workplace.
