Welcome to CAEST.NET
Thank you for visiting the CAEST.NET web site. This web site was over a year in its development, design, creation and implementation. It is established as an ongoing extension of the TECH-10001 class offered at Kent State University. While this site currently has projects for only the three most commonly used applications; Microsoft’s Word, Excel & PowerPoint, it will eventually contain projects for many more computer applications as well as a variety of trivia quizzes which will cover the topics and expansions of those topics, learned in the TECH-10001 class:
DVDs & CDs
Mice and Keyboards
Internet File Sharing
Jump (Flash) Drives
Evolution of Audio files
Mac Personal Computers
LED Light Bulbs
How to give a Presentation
Cell Phone Technology
Tablets (e.g. IPad)
Video Camera (Camcorder)
Printers - Laser, Inkjet, 3D, Dot Matrix, Thermal
Definition and Evolution of Robots
PDA/Pocket PC (Not Cell phone type)
Viruses - Worms - Trojan Horses
Alternative Energy Vehicles
Flight Data and Cockpit Voice Records
Cable and Satellite Television (Digital & Analog)
Audio and Video Surveillance Devices
Home Automation Systems
Remote Control Tech (From home toys to Mars)
Printed Circuit Board Function
Having been given responsibility for the Info Tech (TECH-10001) class in 2005, my goal for this class has always been to give our students a basic but thorough as possible background in Computer Technology. I am constantly seeking simple and convenient ways to help students enhance their proficiency with computer applications. To this end I established this web site. As you explore and return to CAEST.NET, you will see that it will be constantly re-created and revised with more projects for more computer applications and trivia quizzes which I hope will be an enjoyable way to review knowledge of the history of computers/technology as well as how the various technologies function. I offer this web site to students, faculty or anyone who wishes to use its contents to refresh or improve their skills through the self- or instructor-assigned projects available here. As you use this web site, I encourage you to provide me with any and all comments and suggestions. I truly hope this helps all who use CAEST.NET.
There is a very old saying which I took to heart the day I started teaching at Kent State. It has proven quite true for me:
That if you become a teacher; By your pupils you will be taught.
