[SOUND] Hello ITPRO TV welcomes you to a special series in conduction with IC3 and I choose life that we find in Africa. And here to help us to understand the content that we'll be covering is gonna be Dr. Tony Almuanza. Dr. Almuanza, welcome to our studios and what are we gonna be taking look at? >> Thank you very much for inviting me over here and it's a great place to be as I look around, technology here is powerful And we're gonna spend sometime thinking through the fundamentals of computing, that we can then use to learn and become more proficient and improve our productivity. We're basically gonna spend time thinking about four key areas. And the four key areas are gonna be the basics of computers. Thinking through the hardware. Thinking through the overall construction of a computer which includes input output devices, the storage, the system unit and broadly the basics of the computer. That's one element. The second element, we're gonna spend a little bit of time on software. That's what runs the computer because the computer on it's own is a hardware, really can't get to do much. So we need software. So we'll talk about the system software which includes the operating system among other types of system software, and we'll pick up on a specific operating system, which is the Windows 7. And then, we'll spend a bit of time thinking about the administration of the same and maintenance of that Windows 7 operating system. Then towards the end of that section we'll spend time on application software and we'll look at what are some of the features and characteristics of application software? The third thing we're gonna spend time on is Microsoft Office. So we want to appreciate what is Microsoft Office 2000, or 2010 or whatever? But we will spend a lot of time on Microsoft Office 2010. Then we'll really master ourselves a little more on thinking through Microsoft Word, Microsoft Access, Microsoft PowerPoint, and then Microsoft Excel. Then, I hope that that way we will have built our capacity to use a computer and improve our productivity. Then we'll close with the fourth section which will focus on connectivity and communication. In that area, we'll want to spend thinking about how to compute this communicate, what are the basics of the Internet, how does data flow around. How could we possibly create a website, how do we access website and things like that. And then in conclusion of that section, we wanna think about the safety of users, the safety of our computers, the environmental issues, the legal issues, ethical issues, and hopefully we'll have been empowered. >> All right. Well Dr. Almonza, thank you for being here as we start this new series and we want to make sure that you are actually going to enjoy this as well. So if you are ready for actually learning more about computing fundamentals, you wanna stay right here as we get started very soon. Thank you for joining us. [MUSIC]
