You can also access course materials on your smartphone or tablet.
'OU Anywhere' gives you the option to download your textbooks, videos and other materials to make it easier to study wherever you are. You'll still get the box in the post – but the app gives you even more flexibility.
You'll have access to online resources such as podcasts, broadcasts, computer software and interactive teaching materials; and a dedicated website for the module you’re studying. Our huge online library has thousands of online ejournals, ebooks, databases and multimedia resources for you to tap into, 24 hours a day, seven days a week, whenever you need them and wherever you are.
You'll get a study timetable to help you plan your reading, activities and assignments; details of when and where tutorials and study days (which could be face-to-face or online) will take place; and the dates and venues of any exams. And before you begin, an online induction programme to familiarise you with the OU's style of learning will get you off to a great start.
