CompLit4U is an outreach project that aims to empower campus management services staff at UKZN with basic computer literacy skills.
The project is the brainchild of Dr Tanja Reinhardt (Co-ordinator of STEC@UKZN) and was born out of a conversation with colleague Mr Sashlin Girraj. ‘Sashlin and I were at an event and we discussed how cleaning staff did not know how to use a computer. We realised that there was willingness to learn and there were resources available, but someone needed to bring them together,’ recalled Reinhardt.
Reinhardt and Girraj developed the curriculum, enlisted participants, obtained resources and taught the content. The course is run over five days and covers computer basics, Microsoft Word, how to use the Internet, how to send an email and computer/online security.
