WHAT YOU LEARN IN THIS COURSE

An electronic computer may be called an electronic "brain” but its functions and

problem-solving ability depend on the intelligence of a human being who directs and

controls the machine. This person is called a programmer and is responsible for giving

the computer a set of instructions consisting of the necessary steps required to derive a

solution to a given problem. The set of instructions that control the computer is called a

program. The purpose of this course is to teach you how to program in BASIC.

The course will:

i. Introduce you to basic hardware and software.

ii. Teach you how to program in BASIC to a certain level.

iii. Teach you how to use computer to process information.
