Brief Description Simple and complex computer skills are rapidly becoming a basic requirement for employees in the main economic sectors in Jamaica. Yet, there is only limited awareness of the importance of computer skills. More importantly, the Jamaican population has had little opportunity to participate in computer training. Realising the importance of computer skills to modern education, the government of Jamaica has put the information society high on the agenda as a means to improve its educational competitiveness and therefore, economic development. This will require widespread awareness of and skill development in computers among Jamaicans whose current access to the use of new technologies is limited. Consequently, out of an IICD ICT Roundtable held in Kingston in July 1998, Computer User Television Show emerged as a means to effectively disseminate useful computer knowledge.
