To succeed in your college classes and in your future careers, appropriate computer skills are no longer optional. They are necessary. How well do your computer skills match the needs of today’s higher education and workforce environments? Maybe you can add a post to Facebook but can you save a file and then attach it to your e-mail? Are you puzzled by the structure and working of an online Learning Management System such as Moodle?
