Sauk Valley Community College will offer its popular short course, Introduction to the Basics of Computers, from 8 a.m. to 4;30 p.m. on Tuesday, January 20, in Room 3K2.

If you know nothing about computers, this class is a great place to start. Participants will discover the basics such as computer components and media that can be used, keyboard and mouse operations, terminology, and the operating system defined. The class will introduce participants to operating systems, give a brief overview of basic windows commands and easy to use shortcuts, explore the types of software available, and how software is installed or removed. Students will also get the chance to tackle several basic tasks that will allow them to maintain and troubleshoot simple computer problems.

Cost for the class is $85 and includes all materials.

To register, call Sauk’s Office of Admissions and Records at 815/288-5511, ext 273, or stop by the admissions office in Room 1J1. Admissions office hours are 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. Mondays through Wednesdays, and 8 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Thursdays and Fridays.
