The core module materials are provided in hard copy and online, but other study material is provided in an online format only. Online materials are composed of pages of text with images, audio/video clips of 1 - 22 minutes in length, self-assessment quizzes and assessment materials. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms. Transcripts and subtitles are available for audio-visual materials.

Tuition strategy

This module provides online tutorials. Although not compulsory, attendance at tutorials will help you consolidate your learning. 

Diagrams and other visual content

The study materials contain some images. Figure descriptions are provided for figures. These do not form a key part of the assessment.

Finding information

You may be encouraged to search for, and make use of, third party material online.


This module has five Tutor-Marked Assignments (TMAs), and an End-of-Module Assignment (EMA) which must be submitted online via the OU electronic TMA system. Special submission arrangements can be made where appropriate.


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.
