Module 1 looks at Online Life in the broader context and highlights some background knowledge and issues we should all be aware of when using the Web. As librarians, we can pass this information on to our patrons.
The module is broken down into 3 separate topics:
1. Online Privacy and Security
2. Open ID
3. Creative Commons
which gives a thorough explanation of what they are and offers some useful information, tips and advice to make your "online life" a simpler, safer and more enjoyable experience.
Given the nature of this learning programme this first module is a great starting point - even if it is just a refresher for some of you.
