In this module, students are introduced to email. The aim is for students to understand how to use email software to write and send messages, and to collect, read and reply to messages. Students start to experience some of the advantages of email, such as easy and quick communication, and enabling messages to be sent almost immediately over large distances. Students begin to understand the main features of email software.
Students should be able to access the email software and use it to create a new message. They should be able to type in a given email address correctly and add an appropriate subject line. They should be able to use the email software to send the message.
Students should be able to use the email software to reply to a message they have received. (This should be achieved by using a reply button rather than re-typing the address.)
Students should be able to use the email software to check for new mail. They should be able to identify, access and read new messages. They should be able to understand where to look on the email to find out who sent the mail and what it is about (address and subject lines).
In addition to the pass criteria, students should be able to understand how/where email software stores messages, e.g. the default folders like inbox, outbox, sent folder, drafts, deleted items / trash, etc. Students know how/where to find or access stored emails in these folders.
Students can use the email software to forward and send a carbon copy (cc) email to another recipient. They understand the difference between forward, reply and carbon copy (cc), and when they should be used.
At the end of this course, student will take the ICT Starters Assessment of Initial Steps Stage 2 Module 3 : Starting Email.
Cambridge Certification is available at TWO stages.
