Good experience so far!!
Study materials are simple, clear, compact, jargon - free. Assignment task sheets have some ambiguous wording and vagueness here and there. This could be improved and needs revision in my view for this course.
The option to submit written or word processed work is good. Emailing assignments as email attachments is very convenient, and allows me to keep "back up" copies of my work, for safety, and also saves me a considerable amount of money on registered postage, envelopes, paper, pens. The nylon satchel provided is extremely useful to keep all my course stuff together, and a great idea!!
The course is enjoyable, and comprehensive with a nice steady difficulty progression rate. I have not used tutor support as yet, but the marking and feedback system seems efficient, clear, and professional. Overall I would recommend the Open Study College and this course.
