I Can Teach Myself! Learning the Computer is a free, interactive, user-friendly, computer-based training program for teaching students how to use computers. With this program, students can learn how to use the computer without needing a formal teacher - the only "teacher" needed is someone who knows a little more about computers than the student(s). For example, students who have never used computers before will need someone to help them turn on the computer and start the program, then to answer questions and help with problems.|
I Can Teach Myself! Learning the Computer has Beginning and Intermediate lessons with theory, practice, review and testing, plus Advanced lessons that go into more detail about Microsoft Word, Access, Excel and PowerPoint.
I Can Teach Myself! Learning the Computer is in web-page format, but does not require access to the Internet.
