    How to better perform specialized functions in Microsoft Excel. 
    Oh, instead of learning new skills, I would prefer to be able to continue to eke by with the skills I have. Does that mean I'm getting old? 
    More about excel and learning to use it more efficiently. 
    I think that I've learned most of all the basics. I wouldn't mind learning more in publisher, but that doesn't really pertain to much school work. 
    How to utilize excell more and how to create my own webpage. I have done both before, but some time ago and need a refresher. 
    How to run a website, and how to create spreadsheets in formulas without having to be told how to write the formulas everytime. 
    Using and designing relational databases in programs like Microsoft Access or FileMaker Pro. 
    creating my own web page 
    My speadsheet abilities are about average. I would like to become more proficient in this area. 
    I would like to strengthen my excel skills. I would also like to learn powerpoint. I am a non-trad student, 37 years old, and consider myself technologically challenged. 
    How to get all the information without ever using a computer. (Does that count?) 
    Web design More mechanics - taking apart computer and putting it back together 
    Excel--how to better organize data, sort it, and be able to actually make it work for you. I have used some functions and formulas, but not very often. I feel that a strong understanding in how to use excel, especially when analyzing data, compiling lists, etc. is vital. 
    More web page creation, more difficult spreadsheet uses. 
    I would like to learn more about using spreadsheets and statistics programs. I would love to learn more html and java script, and how to use css to make websites. 
    I would like to become more knowledgeable about how to fix any problems that come with working computers (ie-viruses). 
    I have no idea how to create a web page, so that would probably be a good one to learn. 
    How to set up an in-home secure network. 
    I would like to improve my skills in the areas that are not marked excellent above. Although I feel I am proficient in all major computer programs, there is always something else that may be learned.

    I use my computer in class to take notes for the most part and like to be given power point presentations before class so that I may listen and take notes as needed. I think the computer is an excellent resource, but at the same time, I do not want my teacher to be taken over by a computer. I like in class learning with the help of technology. I have taken 2 online courses, and it is just not the same as attending class. 
    I probably will get a new laptop for school that is capable of dual boot with windows/macosx, and I will probably have an iphone to combine a lot of my electronics. 
    I really would like to have lots of course information online, but I also think that it is very important to have as much hands on in class experience as possible.
