CHROMEBOOK BASICS

  • A Chromebook is a low-cost laptop (usually costing less than 772QR).
  • Chromebooks run on Google’s Chrome OS as its operating system rather than Windows or Apple's OS X.
  • Chromebooks are designed to be primarily used while connected to the internet.
  • Chromebooks start up in seconds and offer thousands of apps for productivity and creativity.
  • Chromebook's battery life is great because it can last for more than 10 hours and some almost 14.
  • Chromebooks run web apps that you download instead of traditional programs physically installed on your computer.
  • Chromebooks are portable, light weight, and durable.
  • Chromebooks are great for light web browsing, checking emails, watching online videos, creating documents and spreadsheets with Google Docs, but not as full-featured as a regular PC.

INTERNET BASICS

  • The Internet is a global network of billions of computers and other electronic devices.
  • Going online means to connect a computer to the Internet.
  • A modem is a device or program that enables a computer to transmit data over, for example, telephone or cable lines.
  • A router is a device that forwards data packets along networks.
  • The cloud is the Internet, it's all of the things you can access remotely over the Internet.
  • The main reasons to use the cloud are convenience and reliability, for example, if you've ever used a web-based email service, such as Gmail or Yahoo! Mail, you've already used the cloud.
  • A word or phrase that's underlined in blue is probably a hyperlink, or link for short.
  • Links are used to navigate the Web.

INTERNET SAFETY

  • The Internet makes it possible to access information quickly and communicate around the world.
  • The Internet is home to certain risks, such as malware, spam, and phishing.
  • Spam messages can clutter your inbox and make it more difficult to find the emails you actually want to read.
  • Spam often includes phishing scams and malware, which can pose a serious risk to your computer.
  • Any likely spam messages will be placed in the spam folder so you don’t accidentally open them when checking your email.
  • Spam-blocking systems aren’t perfect and there may be times when legitimate emails end up in your spam folder.
  • To protect yourself and your information, you'll want to use passwords that are long, strong, and difficult for someone else to guess while still keeping them relatively easy for you to remember.
  • Even though most websites are secure, there's always a small chance someone may try to access or steal your information.
