e-Learner equips younger students with a solid foundation for progressing on to the ECDL / ICDL qualification.  It is a certified, modular course of progressive ICT skills.  Using a unique and integrated approach, e-Learner provides the means to acquire essential ICT skills across a spectrum of 7 units with +/- 30 contact hours.

e-Learner Units

The accredited e-Learner course is made up of units and is available at two different levels (Silver and Gold).  The Silver course comprises 5 units and covers skills within these units on a basic level.  The Gold course covers all 7 units and skills within these units are more advanced.  The e-Learner units are aligned to those which one would encounter in the ECDL / ICDL course thereby acting as a perfect introduction (Silver) and progressive stepping stone (Gold) to the ECDL / ICDL Core.  Units in the e-Learner course are as follows:

1. IT Basics
2. Files & Folders
3. Drawing
4. Word Processing
5. Spreadsheets
6. Presentations
7. Web Browsing & Email


e-Learner Syllabus




The courseware for e-Learner is unique in a number of ways:

a) Integrated

The e-Learner lessons not only teach ICT skills but also integrate current classroom content thereby ensuring that lessons are interesting and relevant and students remain interested and motivated.

b) Flexible

We are not prescriptive about the order or quantity of lessons that you should teach to your students.  As integration is a key element of our courseware, this should be a priority when selecting a lesson to teach, in conjunction with a concept and ICT skill level suitable for your class.  The only requirement is that you should have covered all the prerequisite e-Learner skills for the course you are following.

c) Comprehensive

All the resources required to complete an e-Learner lesson are supplied including student templates, saved web pages, website links and graphics.  The instruction booklet for teachers is written in an easy to follow and concise manner with explanatory screenshots to guide you through each step of the lesson.



Tracking and Reporting

Records of lessons completed and skills acquired are kept by the teacher using the e-Learner Administration System.  A Skills Record Card is also issued for each student on registration and assessments are administered by the ICT facilitator or teacher.




Once the required skills have been completed for all the units in either the Silver or Gold course, the completed Skills Record Card, together with a copy of the e-Learner Administration System, is forwarded to Head Office.  After verification, accredited certificates will be issued for each student fulfilling the requirements in either the Silver or the Gold course.


Schools qualify for bulk pricing - please contact your local Computers 4 Kids Representative.

Success Stories

We at ORBIT College started e-Learner training at the beginning of this year.  We did this because we realized that there was a gap between learners without any computer knowledge and ICDL.

Some of our learners are from the mines and unemployed, and do not have the skills to do ICDL.

We did our first final exam last week.  The learners enjoyed this program as we could prepare them for ICDL in a fun way.  The course took 4 months, and in July we will enroll them for ICDL.

Thank you for this excellent course to assist us to prepare learners for better performance on the ICDL programme.
