Thanks, you just may see me, nearly 25 years of computer experience but no
proof because I have never taken one class, and, since I may have to move to
Office 2007 in the not so distant future, maybe I should take my first
class.  
 
FYI, I have been using word processing programs from Word Start forward,
learning by experimenting, help menus asking questions and when all else
fails reading manuals with the Optacon.

Hi, Rose.  The lessons/lectures can be downloaded and listened to at the
student's convenience.  I do not anticipate any required meetings where
students will have to be online at any specific time.

Thanks.

I'd be more interested in the times!  I am in Arizona but work 10-hour days.

Hi Keith,

What are the pre requisites for this course other than 2007?  I guess you
have to know how to do online and use the web?

Dakota State University is happy to announce that its Introduction to
Computers Class is being taught online this fall with one section
specifically designed for screen reader users.  The class begins on
September 2 and runs for 15 weeks.  Our staff is making sure that the text
will be accessible for screen reader users, users of Braille displays, and
users of Dragon Naturally Speaking with JAWS and J-Say.



The course is entitled "Introduction to Computers."  It presents a brief
introduction to personal computers, along with Windows XP and Vista.
The vast majority of the course focuses on Office 2007.  Individuals who
sign up for the class and do not currently have Office 2007 installed will
be able to purchase the program for $20 from DSU.  I will be the instructor,
and I am a totally blind computer user who has used the computer with
assistive tech for over 20 years.



The cost for all distance education courses at Dakota State is  $219.55 per
credit hour.  Thus, this three-credit course will cost $658.65.  I know
that, in South Dakota, the rehabilitation agency for the blind is willing to
pay this tuition, and other state agencies may be willing to do so as well,
given the fact that, to my knowledge, this is the only course of its kind
being offered with accessibility for screen reader users in mind.  We also
welcome students from outside the United States.



Students can either sign up for the course using our on-line registration
form or by calling our office at 800-641-4309. The student will want to
identify Keith Bundy's section as the one they are interested in. The Course
Prefix is CSC 105 and the SYN number is 24511.



The registration form is at

https://www.secure.dsu.edu/ees/course_registration.asp/



If anyone has additional questions, please feel free to email or call me.
Feel free to circulate this announcement to any individual or list you may
deem beneficial.
