The Text Book "ICT Essential for Secondary Schools and Tertiary Institutions" has been approved by National Curriculum Development Centre for use in Secondary Schools and Tertiary Institutions. The Approval Certificate was awarded in November, 2017.

This is a textbook meant for both Students and Teachers. The content of this book was developed basing on the ICT syllabi for Ugandan Secondary Schools (O’ & A’ levels) developed by National Curriculum Development Centre (NCDC) and the structure of modules on Introduction to ICT in Tertiary Institutions. The programming language of Visual Basic has been used which is in line with the recommendations of Uganda National Examinations Board (UNEB). The book aims at building a firm foundation for ICT and Computer literacy for students at all levels and anyone interested in becoming Computer literate.

This book has been written in a simple language to understand and one may not need to have prior computer knowledge to use it. Chapters have been chronologically arranged to give a reader a systematic way of acquiring the skills. However, depending on the level of ICT understanding and interest of the reader, the order of chapters may not matter. Relevant practical examples and activities have been used to support learning.

The book content covers essential aspects every person who is ICT literate should have; Microsoft Office, Networking, Internet and Web designing among others.  It is a practical guide. Your goal should be to read a step and then try to actually do the step on your Computer or in a computer lab where a lab support person can help you. That person may even offer a different order of steps. Please listen and explore. By personal exploration, you will build the skills you want.

Finally, it is my dream to have Computer literate Ugandans.
