Accessibility Statement for Structural integrity: predicting and assessing performance (T367)
Mode of study
Most of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images; audio/video clips (all with transcripts/subtitles); diagrams; interactive media; engineering calculators and spreadsheets; animations; and multiple-choice self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. We provide printed materials for all module content.
This module provides a range of learning events, online tutorials and face-to-face tutorials. Each face-to-face learning event offers an online (or other) alternative. Although not compulsory, tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.
This module introduces you to the use of an online laboratory. We’ve prepared advice on accessing the laboratory to enable students to complete the module.
Mathematical and scientific expressions and notations
You’ll be required to use mathematical and scientific symbols and expressions throughout the module and within assessment.
Diagrams and other visual content
The study materials contain a considerable number of diagrams/graphs/photographs. Reading and interpreting these is an important part of the study of this module and we assess this. We provide descriptions for all essential figures.
This module has Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which you must submit online via the OU electronic TMA system; interactive computer-marked assignments completed online; and an end-of-module assessment submitted online.
You’ll receive feedback from your tutor on your submitted Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs). This will help you to reflect on your TMA performance. You should refer to it to help you prepare for your next assignment.
We structure all University modules to a set timetable and you’ll need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. We’ll support you in developing these skills.
