This article reports that Questar has unveiled OpenICDL.com, the online training solution for basic computer skills based on open source and desktop Linux. Using a modern personal computer is an everyday need, and OpenlCDL gives users the opportunity to put their knowledge of it on a firm base by training in an open source environment. ICDL, which stands for the International Computer Driving License, is a standard certification of basic computer skills adopted in over 50 countries, and achieved by over 3.5 million people worldwide. The new OpenlCDL online training course is compliant with the requirements of the ICDL certification, and is the first to use desktop Linux-based programs as a basis. Linspire, a desktop Linux operating system, OpenOffice.org, a complete productivity and office suite, and Mozilla, a fast and secure Internet navigation and electronic mail suite, are used throughout OpenlCDL's training modules. OpenlCDL's training modules comprise a modern and easy-to-follow electronic learning suite. Users follow self-paced modules that convey a rich experience in covering the subject matter, and can access the content at their convenience at any time from their business, school, or home.
