Mode of study

All of this module’s study materials are online. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images, video clips (some with transcripts), diagrams and multiple choice self-assessed formative quizzes, which are optional. Online materials also include a wide range of links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms.

Tuition strategy

This module has online tutorials. Although not compulsory, tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.

Practical work

Online practical work forms a required component of assessment. This module extends your experience of using the NetBeans IDE and introduces you to the use of the OpenStack IaaS platform and the use of Cordova for developing mobile applications. The module also requires that you briefly use the command line interface for Linux and either an Android phone (if you have one) or an Android emulator. Students with visual impairment or limited manual dexterity may require sighted/manual assistance.

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain a number of diagrams, graphs and photographs. Reading these is an important part of the study of this module and is assessed. Figure descriptions are provided for all figures.

Finding information

You will be required to search for, and make use of, third party material online and this is assessed.


This module has three Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system, and an End-of-Module Assessment (EMA) submitted online.


You will 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.


All University modules are structured according to a set timetable and you will need time-management skills to keep your studies on track. You will be supported in developing these skills.

Specialist software

The module materials and assessment ask you to use specialist software ‒ NetBeans, Cordova, OpenStack ‒ and may not be fully accessible as a result. Students with visual impairment or limited manual dexterity may require sighted or manual assistance.
