Turn-of-the-Millennium Technology was a history course taught at Starfleet Academy on the level of late 20th century. Among the subjects taught in this course was a section on typing.

When USS Voyager inadvertently traveled to 1996, Chakotay ribbed Kathryn Janeway for never learning to type. Janeway replied by stating that the course wasn't required at the Academy, and that the entire subject was "like stone knives and bearskins." (VOY: "Future's End")

Montgomery Scott shared a similar moment after he had traveled back to 1986, and had an encounter with a Macintosh computer. Like Janeway he described the level of technology at the turn of the millennium as "quaint." Unlike Janeway, however, he appeared to know his way around computer systems of the time. (Star Trek IV: The Voyage Home)

Janeway may have been speaking facetiously when referring to this course.
