Welcome to the home page of PDMU9L6, Information Technology Skills.

PDMU9L6 is a half module in IT skills which aims to develop a broad appreciation of information technology, through development of skills in using various standard application packages; in particular: Document Preparation including Word Processing and Graphics Manipulation, Spreadsheets, Slide Show Presentations. Teaching assumes students already have basic computer skills in a Windows interface.

This module runs in Autumn semester as a stream of CSCU9B1, amd as part of the summer academic programme. It is not currently planned to run in the evening again, or in Spring. It is delivered in ten practical sessions (workshops) and ten lectures. In semester, the usual attendance pattern for each student is one two-hour workshop per week, but there will be a number of timetabled sessions each week, so a faster pace is possible. For the summer academic programme the module runs as a compressed two-week course with one workshop each day. You can find out more about what the module covers by looking at the syllabus.

Who should take this module?

This is a half-credit personal development module. Because IT skills are important for all students in the university this module is open to any day or evening student except:

  • any student taking a Computing Science module.
  • any student who has passed a Computing Science module.
  • any student in their first semester.
