COL launched this programme to widen access to information and communications technologies (ICTs) skills training using free software. Sir John Daniel, President of COL, announced the initiation of the Commonwealth Computer Navigator's Certificate (CCNC) on 16 September to coincide with Software Freedom Day 2006.
The people and institutions are warmly thanked for their contribution to the CCNC materials.
The Commonwealth of Learning (COL) conceptualised the Computer Navigator's Certificate (CCNC) in 2006. The CCNC widens the available learning and training options in the Commonwealth by acquiring ICT skills using free open-source software. It furthermore eliminates concerns about the illegal use of proprietary software.
The CCNC is open to participation from local tertiary education institutions, non-governmental organisations (NGOs) and private-sector training institutions throughout the Commonwealth interested in adopting the certificate in their own offerings. Alternatively, they can use the materials to obtain the full Core OpenICDL Qualification.
The CCNC materials (Version 1.0) are also available on the COL website http://www.col.org.
While working through the modules, you will notice the frequent use of margin icons. These icons serve to “signpost” a particular piece of text, a new task or change in activity - they have been included to help you to find your way around these materials.
