A computer is an electronic device that manipulates information, or data. It has the ability to store, retrieve, and process data.
You may already know that you can use a computer to type documents, send email, play games and browse the web. You can also use it to edit or create spreadsheets, presentations and even videos.
With that said, let’s learn some basic features that you can do on a computer.
Your LifeSpan Center, in partnership with Lake Land College instructor James Munger, will host a Computer Basics course on Saturday, May 11, from 10 a.m.–noon.
