Course description

This tools and utilities course will introduce students to some of the programs designed for the desktop environments of end users. We can use these programs to browse the Internet securely (Mozilla), manage our e-mail and work in groups (Ximian Evolution) and to create Microsoft-Office style text documents, spreadsheets and presentations (

On this course, students will also discover how to work with these free tools in proprietary environments such as Microsoft Windows, as well as GNU/Linux of course.

The course contents are organised into two main parts. The first, which covers Units 1 and 2, deals with Internet tools, while the second focuses on the program, which needs more units due to its complexity.
