ECDL Extra


Important information: All public PCs at the University have been upgraded to Office 2016. The courseware that is assigned to your ECDL account is generic so even though it may say Office 2010 or Office 2013 you can still use this on any computer running any version of Office.

We now have Office 2016 tests available and will move all students to the latest version. We will inform you when your account has been updated.




The ability to use a computer effectively is an essential life skill. Computer skills enable people of all ages to understand and use technology to improve their personal and professional lives. Certified computer skills can help the holder’s professional life by making them more attractive to employers, while increasing their ability to communicate and access information and services in their personal life.
