The class offered here is really aimed for students in our Business
Technology programs and it moves very fast (legal secretary, medical
office specialist, ect.). They cover every aspect of controlling the
computer with DNS (internet, MS Word, Excel, PowerPoint, windows) and
get very detailed with formatting in MS Word and other programs. I think
it's to much for what students need and I agree that it can be fairly
quick to get someone started. Three students who I work with have
attempted to take the class this year and have not passed. I don't want
them to have this level of frustration for something that could be a lot
easier. If I have students who begin in Fall I can't get them started
using DNS because the class is offered only in winter and spring terms,
it just doesn't make sense to me.

To be honest, I think Dragon is so easy to use that I have never done
more than spend a few hours training a student to use it. I*d never
heard of a class to actually teach a large number to use it. It is
pretty easy once you*ve sat down in front of it.
What kinds of things are being taught in the class?
