    Why computer literacy is important

    VIU provides students with access to a high-speed internet service, wireless networking, and numerous computer labs. Many students will already know how to use this technology; others will need to learn the basics after they get to VIU. These basics—often called “computer literacy”—are essential for success in higher education and the workforce.

    VIU offers many opportunities in different programs to learn how to use computers, software, and information technology in sophisticated ways that go well beyond “computer literacy" (students should check with program advisors about specific computer application skills they will need in their programs of study.)  But “literacy’ is the starting point. For example, almost all students, no matter what their program, will need to use computers to:

    • access the internet to register for courses, view their grades, and get information or course projects;
    • use a word processing program to complete assignments;
    • use e-mail to communicate with instructors and other students.

    Computer literacy is not a requirement for admission to VIU; however, basic computer literacy skills are not taught for University level credit. What this means is that VIU expects students to acquire these skills on their own initiative, either before they come to VIU, or soon after they arrive.

    VIU primarily uses Windows and Microsoft Office products for basic computing tasks.

    What is computer literacy

    At its most basic, to be computer literate today is to be able to use a web browser, email and a word processor, and to know enough about the way a computer operates to ensure you don’t lose work. In somewhat more detail, these skills can be described as follows.

Students need operating system and file management skills for everyday operation of campus and home computers.
