RCC courses cover most widely-used technology

Three one-credit courses offered at Rappahannock Community College this summer are designed to help students make the most of widely-available technology tools. Information systems technology professor Michael Greene will explain Powerpoint presentations, Excel spreadsheets, and an assortment of social, business and career tools. Each of these topics will be covered in three afternoon sessions, 2-5 p.m., at a cost of $135.19, plus fees and textbook.

“Become a Presentation Master” (course number AST 147-Presentation Software), to be offered on May 29, and June 2 and 5, explores the possibilities of PowerPoint presentation software. Students will learn the software and design concepts used to make powerful, elegant, and creative presentations, and will gain an understanding not only of what makes great slides, but of what pitfalls to avoid.

“Become a Spreadsheet Wizard” (ITE 140-Micro SW-Spreadsheets), on June 9, 12, 16, will move students past the basics toward a mastery of Excel software. Greene said he will “uncover some powerful functions and vital keyboard shortcuts” that will greatly increase productivity in using these tools.

On June 19, 23, and 26, “Learning the Internet for Business” (AST 160) will teach how to build engaging content for a personal brand or small business. Students will use online tools to communicate and collaborate with their audiences, make sense of web analytics, and acquire meaningful online connections.

For more information about these three courses, please email RCC information systems technology professor Ruth Greene at (her preferred contact method), or call her at 804-333-6700.
