Two leading Dublin-based e-learning companies have just announced
endorsement for their IT courseware by Oxford, Cambridge and RSA Examinations’
(OCR’s) Computer Literacy and Information (CLAIT) qualification – the UK’s
fastest-growing package of IT qualifications.
Educational Multimedia Corporation earned its endorsement for its Microsoft
Office e-learning package, which includes Outlook, Word, Excel, PowerPoint and
Access Core courses. Its Word and Excel Expert courses have also been endorsed
by the CLAIT Plus qualification. The courses are self-paced and include a
pre-assessment module and multimedia animations, simulations and interaction.
Electric Paper’s courseware, meanwhile, includes a mandatory core unit,
called ‘Create, Manage and Integrate Files’ and has additional units available
for Microsoft Office applications. It is available on CD-Rom and in network and
"Our product allows users to structure their learning programmes on
prior knowledge, available time and the amount of information they can
assimilate in a session," says Jonny Parkes, managing director of Electric
Paper. "Job applicants are now expected to be IT literate before entering
the workforce. For employees who would like to improve theirs, it’s never too
late to learn."
Electric Paper is also launching AutoTest NXG, a web-based version of its
European/ International Computer Driving Licence (ECDL/ICDL) testing solution.
Educational Multimedia Corporation scooped the e-Learning Company of the
Year award at the inaugural 02 Digital Media Awards which showcases Irish
companies operating in the field of digital media.
