The first week of the Computer Works course

The Computer Works course involves building a computer, which gives members of MOWLL the ability to go beyond their normal IT skills.  This ten-week course involves understanding how computers work, how each component of a computer works, and how to build a computer. 

 

Each weekly lesson the members get to watch a short video to understand what is involved in the making of each component, followed by a search of the internet to answer some questions, before installing the component.   At the end of the course, each member will have the skills and knowledge to build a computer.

 

Course details:

Tuesdays 11am - 1pm

Thursdays 11am - 11pm

Room G20, Eleanor Rathbone Building, University of Liverpool, Bedford Street South, L69 7ZA
