Our Digital World is a contemporary take on traditional computer concepts learning by combining textbook resources with a myriad of online activities.

  • Numerous learning resources cater to different students’ needs such as videos, podcasts, online research, and hands-on activities.

 Interactive Integration. SNAP is incorporated throughout giving instructors a robust course management tool and students an enriching learning environment.
