The statistics are flagrant. Nearly half of the planet is online, billions of phones are in use, millions of computers sold and in use and the technology is entering our homes further with smart meters and the likes. Yet, many still feel excluded from this digital revolution. Governments are reporting an alarming degree of exclusion, with IT illiteracy negatively affecting the economy and social dynamics.
The digital publisher 3E Web Media put together a course on the Eiman Academy platform to tackle the issues faced by those who know little to nothing about the subject. The course is a 360 introduction to Information Technology (IT) entitled IT Fundamentals. The ten (10) modules provide both a conceptual and practical awareness and understanding of the basics of IT aka Information and Communication Technology (ICT). The programme fosters an appreciation of the importance of IT and the various ways it can be experienced or used to facilitate and benefit everyday home, work and social lives. These basic builing blocks of digital literacy are useful transferable skills in employability or a guide to further specialised studies in an IT career.
Each module explores different aspects of IT, including data and information, the hardware technology, the software, why and how computers are used to manipulate and get the most out of data, digital communications and networking, the Internet and the web, basic programming, basic media, digital identity and presence, IT security, IT regulations, emerging technologies and more. The aim is to give the learner an opportunity to explore what is possible in IT, be able to understand and do the basics and utilise that knowledge and those skills to enrich or guide their career and life.
The course is delivered face-to-face, online or as a combination for those who feel like it and provides multimedia activities, simulations, videos, practical development, support, quizzes and a lot more engaging and interactive ways to immerse the learner into the technology that has swept us into this digital revolution. Learners get to build a portfolio, perfect their CV/resume and become confident in a positive digital transformation.
