    College Technology Survival Kit provides students with the necessary tools and knowledge to succeed in their academic careers through the use of basic computer skills and other technology. The information shared in the book helps to prevent the technology-related frustrations students can encounter when asked to write papers, create presentations, or navigate a school’s learning management system.

    The book features information on computer programs like Microsoft Word, Excel, and PowerPoint, as well as commonly used learning management systems Blackboard and Canvas. The text offers students lessons in file management, Google web applications, email programs, and developing presentations in Prezi. It provides complete, step-by-step instructions to help students navigate common computer-based programs and systems and develop technological competency.

    College Technology Survival Kit is a cross-disciplinary, supplementary text designed to support all higher education students, regardless of their field of study. It is ideal for foundational courses in computer sciences or other classes where basic computer skills are needed.
