Information Systems Concepts

Course Code: ACCT 100

Academic Year: 2021-2022

We are currently in the middle of an information revolution, and virtually all job occupations have a requirement for computer literacy. The purpose of this course is to introduce students to computer information systems with an emphasis on the hardware, software and basic Microsoft Windows 7 knowledge (file management-maintaining storage locations, backups, etc.) and to give students a basic knowledge of Excel. As with all areas of specialization, a great deal of terminology (new words) must be understood for the employee to be able to function properly in the field. This course will provide most of that terminology along with the basic concepts of computer input devices, processing concepts and output devices. Please note that students who choose to take an online section of this course must write the final exam in person, at either the Humber North or Lakeshore campus, or, if located more than 100km from the campus, through an approved proctoring facility. Any costs associated with this are the sole responsibility of the student.
