Creating a page with more visual interest needs the use of some bold and italic formatting, even extending to bold & italic.

Computer Studies

This course has students learn basic operation of computers, with an understanding of how they work. Students learn to:

  • Start and close down the computer
  • open and close programmes, and save their documents
  • Carry out word processing operations like formatting text, inserting tables, pictures, charts and clip art
  • Process photos using IrfanView - crop, change brightness and contrast, compress for Internet publication

Some more photos shows our group hard at work, after connectivity problems greatly hampered our access to the Internet for much of the afternoon. The course members are to be admired for their persistence in trying to upload material!

Editing Offline

This is to explore offline page editing of pages in WikiEducator using Open Office. Some formatting is likely to be unavailable, perhaps until the next version of Open Office comes into use. Several pieces of formatting are desirable:

  • Bold and Italics and Underline
  • Larger type fonts
  • Different fonts eg Arial, Comic Sans, Handwriting
  • Centering
