about

The European Computer Driving Licence (ECDL) is a European-wide qualification that enables you to demonstrate your competence in computer skills. It covers a range of specific knowledge areas and skill sets, broken down into seven modules. Module 1: Basic Concepts of Information Technology covers the make-up of a PC and the basic concepts of information technology such as data storage and memory, and the uses of information networks within computing. It also looks at the application of computer software and the use of IT systems in everyday situations and covers some of the basic security and legal issues. This study guide takes you through all the knowledge areas and skills required to understand and pass Module 1 of the ECDL syllabus. Throughout each chapter we have used clear, jargon free, self-paced exercises that will provide you with an understanding of all the key elements which will prepare you for the ECDL Test.
