Online Communications - March 29
The Online Communications course examines several common tools that facilitate online communication and collaboration, including email, chat, online documents, file sharing, and conferencing. It explores the underlying technology that allows communication over the internet from a computer to those of other employees, partners, and customers. This information will give the small business owner the background and terminology needed to make informed decisions when working with online service providers. It’s not rocket science – it’s computer science, and any small business owner can understand and make use of this information.
