Abstract: Colleges today are requiring students to conduct more and more administrative business as well as academic tasks using computers and the Internet. Despite this, research shows there are still students entering college without these computer skills. This is particularly true at the community college level. This study examines the effects of a pre-semester basic computer skills workshop for students entering Hawaii Community College with little or no computer experience. Findings indicate participants (n=4) found the workshop effective, felt they improved their computer skills, and were as a result better prepared to enter college. However, these findings should be viewed with caution due to the small sample size of the study.
Description: This project was conducted as a requirement of the Online Master's in Educational Technology program at the University of Hawaii at Manoa. The project was also presented online at the 2009 TCC Online Conference.
