In this poster we intend to outline the approach adopted by the ACOM (COMputing For All) courses, which are intended to provide a comprehensive introduction to Information Technology for undergraduates from a non-computing background. These modules were initially designed in 1996 by Dr Peter Millican, though he and his team (including the authors) have continued to develop them extensively since then. The aim of the ACOM modules is to present a broad range of IT Skills in an accessible manner, and to integrate these skills with student study and research (as emphasised in the Dearing Report, section 13).
