Jan's Computer Lessons & Tutorials

This site contains a series of free-to-use-online lessons on computer topics, starting with the basics of what a computer is and what it does (and all those tech words that your nerdy friends throw around). Working through the entire set would give you the same skills and knowledge as a set of college courses.

I started these lessons as homework of my own in online classes on writing web pages. My goal is to make working with a computer and the most common programs as easy as learning to drive a car... and far safer!
