Computer Literacy Level 1: Computer Basics
Computers are a part of almost every household, but when you first unwrap your first machine and turn it on, you don't know where to start. Every person who knows how to work with a computer started somewhere, and that's where this course can help. This computer basics course starts from the very beginning from booting a machine, understanding basic windows in your operating system, and the computer parts that make up your machine.

Introduction to JavaScript
This course gets you started with an introduction to JavaScript. We assume that you're new to the language, so it gets you started with basic functionality such as creating functions, creating variables, and calling these lines of code from your standard HTML pages. We talk about events and triggers for custom event handling. We also discuss pattern matching, searching for text within a page, flow control and the document object model (DOM).

Google Analytics
This course covers a beginner to intermediate level introduction to Google Analytics. It walks you through the set up process and helps you work with important dashboard metrics that you can use to improve website conversions and traffic. It shows you how to set up customized reports and link your Analytics account with other integral Google properties such as Adwords, Webmasters Tools and Adsense.
