I just came across these pages and i am thinking of adding a new section to cover the Microsoft Office 2003 Packages like
- Ms Word
- Ms Excel
- Ms Access
- Ms PowerPoint
It's me Alison, again. I had the same thoughts (although for updating the OpenOffice tutorials) a few months back. I decided not to continue the CCNC structure (after some discussion with people who were in on it's beginnings), but rather to place updated tutorials in relation to the main OpenOffice page: OpenOffice/Calc 3. Not sure I'd do the same today. I think I might just create a main page called 'Calc Version 3' that would link to any relevant tutorials.
(Note that I added the version '3' onto the name, so that when version 4 comes out we can update the tutorials, but leave the version 3 ones active for people that haven't upgraded yet.)
Just some thoughts on the topic. Hope this helps.
First of all, let me thank all of you for a wonderful work done on teh modules. WHile i am not a computer intruction expert, i look foward to activly promoting the use of CCNC as a standered accros my area of work/influence. A few suggestions at this stage:
- Sections Vs Chapters
Some pages refers to sections while others refer to the same content as chapters. Which do we want to use? If there is consensus on this, i can take on the function of re-alligning all of these.
I beleive we can now use the appropriate Module Names in the MyTitle syntax to clean up most of the pages.
While there is easy navigation within the main pages of Modules, sections/chapters lack clear/easy navigation templates. Perhaps we can work on these?
Just my few cents to generate discussions towards a consunsus.

I'm new to the project, but I'll go ahead and add my few cents to yours.
- Sections vs. Chapters -- There is a note on the Re-structure of template page saying that sections and subsections won't be used in the final versions:
"! Note that in the final piece we will not use the wording 'section, sub-section etc'."
I think the idea is to use the layout of the headings to define section and subsection, with out labeling the different parts as sections, chapters, subsections or the like. This is how the Wikieducator Tutorials work. I think the content benefits from this method.
- Titles -- I totally agree that we should go ahead to clean up the tiles with the MyTitle syntax.
- Navigation -- It seems like Anil has been working on adding navigation tools at the top of every page, but not all of the pages have it yet. I'd also like to recommend adding the PrevNext buttons at the bottom of every page (so users don't need to go back to the top to move on or back).
Looking forward to helping out with this project, Alison
I can help in Modul 5 I have good database information but using Access I don't think there will be big differances between Access and Open Office database: Tables relations, Forms, Reports do they?

Welcome. I'm so glad you can join us. I don't have a background in databases, so I can't answer your questions. If you don't already have OpenOffice suite loaded on your computer, that's a first step. The download is available on the home page: OpenOffice.org . Once you have it, you can see how Base works as compared to Access.
Just looking through the CCNC database module, I think the content is quite well developed. It does appear that it needs to be updated to openoffice 3.0 (I found this link to an OO 3.0? Base tutorial: http://sheepdogguides.com/fdb/fdb1main.htm ) and I have copied you on an email to Peter (who is the original author for the Base tutorial) to see if he is interested in continuing the work.
I'm hoping that between us all we can lay out a set of tasks that need to be done.
Look forward to working with you, Alison
I'm interested in working on Module 4 Spreadsheets in hopes of getting the content to a more usable form. I did a quick review of the whole module (without much knowledge of the larger project, given I'm pretty new to WE), making notes along the way, and have added the notes on the Module 4 discussion page.
Please visit the mod 4 discussion page to comment on my notes. I'm hoping that there are some revision ideas that I could get started on.
Looks as though Anil has been doing some work on the CCNC modules. Is their going to be some activity here? I've been involved in this project for a while and IMHO it needs to be well coordinated from the start across all modules. If someone is going to take the lead on this I'm all in favor... Let me know I will take on Module 3 & 5 and bring it up to OO v3.0. Cheers, Peter Rawsthorne 16:19, 23 January 2009 (UTC)
Hi As you may see from me response to Peter, we were being commissioned to develop 4 of these modules (which would have demanded a clear approach to consistency and style etc.) However, shortly after the contracts were sent to us COL reversed their decision. So we are no longer involved - which is a shame as we are the only organisation to have ICDL accredited online courses. We are working on an OpenICDL based 100% within Moodle (CMS) as we are a Moodle Partner. The first modules will be available soon.
