In many ways, a computer is the ultimate productivity tool. With the right software, a computer can process text to create engaging documents. A computer can turn data into spreadsheets so that information can be easily organized and shared. Computers can even be used to create visual presentations that allow you to communicate your ideas. In this module, we will learn about computer productivity programs and how they can help you achieve your professional goals.
