Computing competencies: ensuring student success
St. Edward’s University has developed a web-based Computer Competency Program ensuring one standard of competency for a diverse student population. Over the past decade faculty members that incorporated technology into their coursework had to teach basic computer skills in order for students to complete class assignments.
