Using a computer for study

Introduction

Unit image

Information technology is an integral part of courses. It's used to enable students to learn about their subject, contact one another, and find resources.

Using a computer for study can be useful for students on any course. For example, about a half of all Open University courses expect students to use a computer.

In this unit, you'll look at:

  • the different ways you might be asked to use a PC in your course;

  • top tips to get started;

  • how to make the most of online conferencing;

  • links to resources.

You may also find it useful to look through our Web Guide (accessed 7 November 2006).
