Beginners may learn basic common text editing techniques. You will learn to enhance your emails using the Rich Text format in the "Compose Message" windows of the email program that you use; it could be Gmail, or Hotmail or Windows Live Mail. We could possibly use WordPad for users of web based email if this is desirable. The idea is that you will learn these techniques in the email program you normally use.
Confidence with the mouse and a good knowledge of the key board are really desirable. Participants should have completed Level 1 Computer Basics and Internet/Email basics or satisfy the tutor that they have attained this standard.
No special word processing program is necessary for this course.
