Contemporary Technology Applications
Intro to Technology
This course introduces both the theory and application of modern day computing and how market forces have influenced developments. It compares the Macintosh platform with the PC platform and looks at file preparations, file management, storage, and retrieval on both. Particular emphasis is placed on the role of the Macintosh platform in the design world so students are prepared for courses in the College of Technology, where the main tool is the Macintosh platform running applications such as desktop publishing, digital image manipulation, web page design, and video editing software. Students who have completed CTA 206, CTA 226, or CTA 326 should not register for CTA 210.
