Aloha, I’m Dr. Steven Singer, and I’m here to talk to you about ICS 101, Digital Tools for the Information World. 101 is a course required by many of the associate in science programs here at Kapiolani Community College and transfers to UH four year colleges . This course provides the foundation for information literacy, which is so critical in this day and age. Students in 101 study various issues and trends in technology such as identity theft, privacy, piracy, digital ethics, hardware, software, and, of course, the Internet. In addition, students study various business applications such as: Microsoft Word, Excel, Access, and PowerPoint, learning how to both create and modify documents for a variety of purposes in a variety of different formats, such as basic web pages, office memorandum, spreadsheets with graphs, forms and queries of databases, and electronic presentations. ICS 101 is both a content and skill rich course that helps students be successful in their academic, personal, and professional lives. Aloha.
