It's November 20, and on this date in 1985, Microsoft introduced a new operating system called Windows 1.0. In the 27 years since, Windows has become by far the most popular operating system. Its latest incarnation, Windows 8, was released less than a month ago, and while the American School doesn't have any Windows 8 computers in our office just yet, we do have many, many computers that use a Windows operating system. We also have many, many computers that use a different operating system. No matter the operating system, every computer in our office serves a specific role and purpose in serving our students. Computers have been on our mind a lot lately as we continue to expand our online learning offerings. If you're interested in taking our online courses or, when they become available, online exams in paper-based courses, please visit our Online Learning page and take a look at the technical requirements for our online learning offerings. There you'll find what's required for Windows and non-Windows operating systems so that you can get the most of your online learning experience with us!
