Introduction
It is inescapable and unavoidable to use computers and information technology (IT) in the modern world nowadays. Students must learn to use IT as a tool for dealing with their everyday lives and equipping them for their future. Technology is developing so rapidly that the technology we deem as the-state-of-the-art today will probably be outdated, but students nowadays who have a good grounding and a solid basis in today’s technology will find it easier to cope with whatever changes and improvements on the way.
