The Computer Is Not A Typewriter

New Tags From This Week

Starting this week, you'll have your own tag page to refer to at will. While it will also be posted here with all the latest additions, you may want to save it off each week at the end of the lesson to make sure you have your own copy. If you don't know how to save a web page, be sure and ask during our online chat this month!
