What ICT skills do I need?
Suggested time: 5 minutes
ICT stands for information and communication technology, and you will need some ICT skills in order to be a successful Open University student.
You will use a computer in your OU study to help you
- communicate with you tutor and other students
- access the information and support you need for your study
- sort out administrative issues with us, such as contact details, fees or financial support.
If you are happy moving around this site, then you probably have the ICT skills needed for an Openings module.
However, if someone is helping you, then use the checklist to find out which areas you may need more practice in before you begin your studies with us.
