The company claims it now offers the widest range of Arabic and English ICDL syllabus 4.0 training materials of any vendor in the region. The ICDL is the internationally recognised certificate that demonstrates a person’s competence in computing knowledge and skills in accordance with international standards. The version 4.0 syllabus is made up of seven modules including, basic concepts of IT, using the computer and managing files, word processing, spreadsheets, database, presentation and information and communication. “Element K Middle East is always looking for ways to make ICDL training more convenient and easily accessible for learners,” says Susan Bodinson, general manager at Element K Middle East. “With our new ICDL offline e-leaning, students can access the course at their own pace, which is especially beneficial for users less familiar with computers, giving them more time to learn the skills of the ICDL.” The new program is a CD-ROM set of seven Element K Middle East’s Arabic ICDL e-Learning courses specifically configured to play offline without the need of an internet connection. Each of the courses, which corresponds to seven ICDL syllabus 4.0 modules, contains interactive hands on examples demonstrated in Arabic versions of Windows XP and Office 2003. Element K are demonstrating its full range of offline e-learning solutions, both in English and Arabic, at Gitex. “We are pleased to be participating at Gitex again this year. We look forward to demonstrating our expanded range of e-Learning libraries as well as our new offline e-Learning training product for the ICDL,” adds Bodinson. “The past year has witnessed continued growth in the field of E-learning in the region. Element K remains in a strong position to help organisations achieve their training goals through a combination of content in Arabic and English,” she adds.
