Lesson 1: Computer Communication
Communicating is the act of giving, transmitting, or exchanging information. A key element in developing a device such as a computer is establishing a method of communication, both internally (for the transfer of information between hardware components) and externally (with the outside world). In this tutorial, we discuss how a computer processes data and communicates (transmits information) with its user. Understanding this process is fundamental to understanding how computers work.
In this lesson, we examine the fundamentals of electronic communication and explore how computer communication differs from human communication.
After this lesson, you will be able to:
Estimated lesson time: 20 minutes
