Using a computer for study


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).
