Once the learner has completed either the Initial Assessments or our Diagnostic Assessment, the Learning Resources will automatically be displayed in the system. The ICT Resources have been written to help learners plug any gaps they may have relating to the Functional Skills Standards, and contain tasks, video tutorials and interactive resources.
The resources have been divided into ten topics: Word Processing, Spreadsheets, Email, Internet, Database, Presentation, File Management, IT Basics, Images and Health, Safety and Security.
For each topic, there is an information pack which covers all of the skills needed to complete all the levels. The resources are task-based and are designed to teach a learner while they are completing a specific assignment. They are designed to plug the gaps in a learner’s knowledge, yet minimise the amount of reading needed to complete a task. As a learner works through a topic, they will use the information pack if they do not know how to do any element of a task.
The ePortfolio available in the bksbLIVE 2 system is particularly useful for the ICT modules, allowing learners to upload work straight to the system, ensuring all work is stored safely and securely.
