The study of the computer becomes more and more important in this era of technological progress. When they leave school, students will most likely find themselves in a technology-rich workplace where their computer skills will be tested. It is therefore incumbent upon each parent to ensure that their child has the basic knowledge to use the computer as soon as possible. In addition, when children are of age, they should consider enrolling them in a reputable computer course. Computer courses help to equip learners, from primary to higher education, with the necessary skills and knowledge to use a computer. The benefits of enrolling in a computer course include:
· Personal enrichment
Computer classes help to enrich students for their academic and professional advancement. Typically, students are expected to do their research on the Web, complete their work online, and use a PowerPoint presentation during class discussions. As a result, students with low computer literacy often lag behind, while those with the skills to use computer technology tend to perform better in the classroom. Their knowledge in the use of computers tends to build their self-esteem, encouraging them to improve in other subjects. In addition, students who qualify for a workplace job are expected to be productive at work by using time-saving resources such as computers. In fact, knowledge of basic software is a key requirement for most office jobs, from the beginner level.
· Improve efficiency
Computers are needed in most facets of organizations. There are many tools and programs available on computers, including spreadsheets, graphical authoring software, and word processors needed to improve work efficiency. Good knowledge of the use of these tools can play a vital role in the effectiveness of an employee. In addition, to stay competitive in all career opportunities, advanced knowledge of computer use is essential.
· Collaboration and communication
Students who have a good working knowledge of computer tools and who work online can work more effectively with their peers in school projects. In addition, electronic knowledge, including email and social networks (via Facebook, Twitter, etc.) is important in any modern society. As a result, students who do not have these skills may not integrate with the rest. In addition, using the local area network (LAN) and email to communicate (that is, sending memos and notices) is a common office standard. Therefore, it is essential that every employee knows how to use the latest technologies and multiple modes of communication in the workplace.
