PDP 101 will help beginners with the basics and necessities of navigation to aid with coursework comprehension and understanding, as well as provide valuable tips for intermediate and expert Internet users.


This course is designed to give participants an understanding of how the classes will operate, as well as to provide tips on how to get the most out of their online courses.  Completion of this course is not required, but is strongly recommended, as it explains the operation, navigation, and format of the online courses.
