This paper investigates whether there is a difference or in fact a way in which one can ensure that the skills being taught through a computer literacy course during a student’s first year of studies are indeed retained and reused throughout their studies to ensure that the university deliver a high quality graduate who can enter the work environment without any technological disadvantages and thus breaching the gap of technologically disadvantaged and computer literate graduates. The research done for this paper does indicate that to some extent, students are retaining some of the skills they were taught during their computer literacy subjects.
