Welcome to Computer 20

You will find all the resource and material necessary to complete the three modules of Computer 20. You will be learning how to make effective presentations, how to build your own website, study visual and how to build databases and use them. Before we start on these three different projects we will spend about a week learning how to use your computers more efficiently and introduce you to using Google email and Google Apps which you will start to use daily in your studies and homework for ALL your classes.
