The Introduction to Computing and Information Technology programme offered by The Open University UK will equip you with a comprehensive toolbox of relevant knowledge, understanding and skills and introduce you to issues encountered in computing and IT, including the profound social and ethical challenges posed by these technologies.
You will also develop your key skills including communication, numeracy and digital and information literacy (DIL).
You’ll have a tutor who’ll help you with the study material, and mark and provide feedback on your work. Your tutor is your first point of contact for any queries on the module and you can ask them for advice and guidance. Your tutor is particularly concerned to help you with your study methods. We may also offer group tutorials or day schools that you are encouraged, but not obliged, to attend. Where tutorials are held will depend on the distribution of students. In addition, there will be online tutorials and other collaborative activities which will take place in your tutor group’s online forum. Throughout your study you can use this forum to keep in touch with your tutor and with other members of your tutor group.Vocational relevance
