We describe key elements and contents of an e-learning course on practical information security that deals with awareness and skills required in daily life. We have had good results in reaching the learning goals and in low resource consuming nature from a teacher's point of view. From a student's point of view the course has been laborious but very instructive and meaningful. We outline also the opportunities of using such a course to contribute to work for information security awareness and usability studies.
