Hi all,
What has been your experience taking mainstream computer classes at a college? I am considering one. Its called something like introduction to computer concepts and applications. It focuses on the MS office suite as well as computer knowledge like terms, hardware, software, components of the computer, things like that. I heard its half lecture or maybe more than half lecture and the rest hands on in the lab working on a computer.
The lecture and book cover the computer knowledge/terms/theory and hands on teaches Word, Powerpoint, internet, and some database which is Access, although I’m  not sure as the catolog did not specify.

How could the professor teach me these things? Explain computer commands with Office short cut keys? This class is required for AA degree students but I’m taking it to get more computer knowledge not only about MS office but about computer operations in general. They will install jaws 12 upon request, but professors know nothing about jaws, other than clicking the icon to turn it on. So I’m on my own for jaws commands.
Maybe I can work with the instructor in office hours but I’d like to get the most out of class.

I know the past blind students worked closely with the professor for help.
