Microsoft Digital Literacy provides eLearning in five distinct courses:
* Computer Basics
* The Internet and the World Wide Web
* Productivity Programs
* Computer Security
* Privacy and Digital Lifestyles
Although the courses are heavily text based, useful videos and practical interactive simulation labs are also included and they can either be taken online or downloaded for offline study.
The recommended time to finish each course is 2-3 hours after which time you can take the corresponding online assessment. There is also a Certificate Test, covering topics from all five courses, which leads to a printable personalized Digital Literacy Certificate if you pass.
Despite much of the material being based on Microsoft products, it is a very useful resource for a 'beginners ICT' class.
