What is IT For Humanity Android Tablet IT Course?

This IT Course is for Filipinos who live in the provinces, and other people who are not very good at english, and do not have enough money to buy an expensive computer. This tutorial will show you how to learn Information Technology and Computer Programming using a cheap android tablet.

This tutorial is designed to be used with an android tablet with a usb keyboard, and maybe even a usb mouse, as shown below. Android version 4.0 (Jellybean) or above is required. I recommend a tablet with a power adapter port aside from a microusb port. (See below: Choosing a Tablet)

How to install the IT Course on an Android Tablet

Accessing flash disks on a tablet

You should only connect 1 flash disk at a time. If you connect 2 flash disks, your tablet will probably not be able to read the second one.

Connect your flash disk to your usb-to-microusb adapter and insert that into the tablet.

Now, open File Manager and click on the USB tab.

Choosing a Tablet

Any tablet will do, as long as its Android version is Jellybean (Android 4.0) or higher. I recommend a tablet with a separate power adapter port (besides the microusb port), so you can use your keyboard and charge your tablet at the same time. If not, you might have to stop studying to charge your tablet every few hours.
