Computer Individualized Instruction (CII)

overview

The Computer Individualized Instruction Program was developed to augment and supplement classroom instruction. Students work at their own pace using instructional materials in the faculty-supervised Computer Lab. Students have an opportunity to interact with their instructors as well as in small study groups. In an atmosphere carefully organized to be conducive to learning and to individual students' academic goals, the students can take advantage of self-paced instruction developed with the primary focus of teaching computer skills such as keyboarding, word processing, spreadsheets, Internet and email basics, windows, presentations, and computer literacy.

What makes CII special?

  • Provides a self-paced, individualized study program for students with limited levels of computer experience.
  • Prepares students with computer skills needed to succeed on class assignments
