Lesson 2: Communicating
Welcome to Lesson 2 of Everyday computer skills: a beginner’s guide to computers, tablets, mobile phones and accessibility. This lesson will allow you to practise some of the skills you learned in Lesson 1 and get you started on creating documents, setting up an email account and social networking. We begin by looking at adapting your computer to suit your access needs.
Key words and concepts are in bold. There is a course glossary you can refer to if any of these are unfamiliar to you.
This lesson is in four sections:
- Using a mouse and keyboard.
- How to create a document using Word.
- Setting up an email account.
- Social networking.
If you already feel confident on the basics, you can skip to the next section, or go straight to Lesson 3.
