INT-1010 Introduction to Information Technology (CyberWATCH common course equivalent: CW120)
Introduction to Information Technology is a survey course in evolving information technology and its relevance to individuals and society. The societal issues stressed include: privacy, security, ergonomics, accessibility, intellectual property, pervasive computing, as well as other timely topics such as new laws impacting computer use. Becoming fluent in necessary technology applications is integrated into the course and may include such topics as word processing, use of e-mail and Web browsers, spreadsheets, course management systems, and others. Students possessing skills and knowledge in this area may receive credit for CIS 1010 by passing the department’s challenge exam (currently the three Internet and Computing Core Certification tests, known as IC3). Students who are already IC3 certified may receive credit for INT 1010 by presenting their three certificates to the transfer evaluator in the Office of Admissions and Records.
Note: Workforce Development and Continuing Education offers a review course for the IC3 exams (DPR 910) as well as free pre-registration for either MOS or IC3 exams at the College (DPR 911). Students with little or no computer experience should consider taking INT 1000, Using a Personal Computer, to get the necessary prerequisite skills. All students take a screening test during their first class in INT 1010. Results are used to advise students regarding which path to take.
