Each of the courses on this site covers applications that will be used in courses throughout the MALET program. The courses are organized alphabetically not sequentially. You can start with any course or skip courses that you may already be familiar with.

Each section has:

  • A series of learning activities
  • Self-study resources

Work through the materials at your own pace. It is OK to make mistakes or redo a learning activity, you are the only person checking your learning, when you are satisfied with your progress, move on to the next activity or to another section. 

The activities in conjunction with the resources will help you acquire the basics needed to use an application - feel free to explore more advanced options or techniques. You may also use other resources or materials to learn an application, there are many tutorials available that can be found by searching the internet, YouTube and Itunes University.
