Features and functions of each of the types of hardware are also covered. Devices covered in this course are: printers, including laser, dot matrix, and inkjet; scanners, including flatbed and barcode; monitors, including the two main types, cathode ray tube (CRT) and liquid crystal display (LCD); a relatively new peripheral device, the virtual reality, or VR, headset; and external optical drives; mice and keyboards with additional features. Learners observe touchpads and signature pads; game controllers; digital cameras and webcams; microphone and speakers; projectors; implementing several methods of external storage drives; KVM switch (stands for keyboard, video, and mouse), a physical device that allows a user to control multiple computers, but with a single set of peripherals, specifically, your keyboard, your mouse, and your monitor; magnetic and chip readers; and Near Field Communication (NFC). Conclude the course with an informative discussion about smart card readers. This course can be used to help prepare for the 220-1001: CompTIA A+ certification exam
