Webwise for Africa
Developed by: BBC for Imfundo
Type of resource: CD Rom (free)
Target audience: General
Webwise for Africa includes a step-by-step interactive introduction to the use of computers, covering everything from what a mouse is and how to use it, to the various components of a computer, and health and safety issues. The main menu has four options:
- Introduction, providing a short guide to the Internet, its history and uses
- Taster session, providing interactive sessions that help users to get to grips with the World Wide Web, e-mail and searching
- Getting online, which gives information on connecting to the Internet and online communities, and
- Going live, enabling users to go online to explore a number of selected sites.
There is also a helpful section on jargon, which provides simple definitions of commonly used terms, such as spam and hardcopy, to HTP and WAN. Webwise for Africa is freely available from the Imfundo team for use in Africa. Please contact Sue Ramsay (firstname.lastname@example.org) should you wish to receive copies.
