What's it all about?

If you're new to computers, or just new to Microsoft Windows 7, this course will get you up to speed fast. In just six weeks, you'll make the transition from helpless beginner to happy PC user.

We'll start with the absolute basics: the computer terms and skills everyone else assumes you already know. (And soon, you will know them!) Then you'll explore some fun Windows 7 features that let you personalise your screen so it suits your style and your specific needs. You'll also learn about some handy gadgets you can put on your computer desktop for work or play.

Next, you'll find out how to type and edit text so you can easily create emails or documents. You'll also learn how to save and organise your work so it's always a snap to find your files. In addition, you'll discover how to save and organise photos, fix the annoying "red eye" caused by flash cameras, and use basic photo editing techniques like cropping.

After that, you'll pick up some tips that will help you search the Web like an expert using the Internet Explorer web browser that comes with Windows 7. You'll also learn how to use flash drives, CDs, and DVDs, and how to protect your system against viruses and other threats.

In each lesson, you'll find fun games and practical, hands-on activities to help you master your new skills. By the time you're done, you'll know the Windows 7 operating system from top to bottom—and you'll be using it like a pro!

Courses are delivered to you through expertly executed lessons, online instruction and interaction with like-minded students. Our courses are designed to deliver all of the benefits of studying in a classroom whilst giving you the flexibility to study at a time and place to suit your needs.

New sessions of each course start monthly and last for six weeks. You’ll gain access to two lessons a week (for a total of 12 lessons) helping you pace your learning. There are no set times for you to study, you can log in and out at any time and complete the course at your own pace. Your expert tutor will guide and facilitate your course, answering any questions you have and providing guidance and feedback. You’ll complete comprehensive lessons, quizzes and assignments before submitting your final exam at the end of the course to achieve your certificate.
