The aim of this unit is to enable learners to perform user support tasks and to provide training materials for users and user support staff. Computer users need appropriate training and support in order to be able to make best use of the systems available to them. As problems will inevitably occur, they also need access to knowledgeable and sympathetic staff within a formal framework of support. This is often via a help desk which, depending on the complexity of the problem, may provide direct assistance, remote support or refer to further expert support. Learners will begin this unit by looking at how to analyse a reported problem and provide user support. This can be in the context of the problem and also in preventive training. Learners will evaluate how problems affect user productivity, deliver appropriate user support and design and apply methods of monitoring and documenting user support activities.
