ECDL - Has anyone completed this?

  Sir Radfordin 11:24 05 Feb 2004

Am in the process of doing some research (more to follow on that later this month perhaps!) that looks at Email.

I want to know how use of Email is covered in the ECDL. Do you just get taught how to send/reply/add attachments or is there anything about how to manage emails and how to use it for effective communication?

Anything you do say will not be given in evidence!

I have the book.My sister(71 years old) went on the course and gave me a copy.The last five pages are given over to e mail.Covers...composing,attaching,cc and bcc,receiving,copying,pasting,replying,filing,and that is it.
If you need it verbatim I can scan the pages and send them,but that is all they have.

I think I have one of the original books.

My wife completed this last year and as bruno suggests, it is very basic. File management is covered but not specifically for e-mail.. ECDL is a little bit of everything without going too deep into any one particular application type.

I've completed all 7 modules, the email one is quite basic, it just tests if you are able to send, receive and reply to an email and adding attachments, anyone that uses email on a daily basis souldn't have any trouble passing that particular module with minimum tuition.

Thank you for your replies - think you have managed to tell me what I needed to know, and more what I expected to hear. People are taught how to use email from a technical aspect but an efficient way of using it for communication. Interesting stuff!
