My battery light came on, my car seemed to lose power and cut off. Today I was told it was because the oil was low in the car so the computer was shutting down the engine to keep it from causing more problems. Is this correct?

If battery light came and car was still running, I don't think it's because of low oil. You can check the oil and see for yourself. But if oil is low you have a oil light that will come on, not the battery one. Indeed some cars shut off when oil level is low, but I don't think that's the case.
