Accessibility Statement for Managing IT: the why, the what and the how (TM254)
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 of 1–10 minutes (all with transcripts/subtitles); diagrams; interactive media; animations; and multiple-choice self-assessed quizzes. Online materials also include links to external resources, online forums and online tutorial rooms.
This module provides online tutorials. Although not compulsory, tutorials will help you consolidate your learning.
Working with others
You’ll be required to work with other students, and we assess this. This includes looking at, and commenting on, others’ work; reflecting on others’ comments on your work; and/or working together with fellow learners on a project/task.
Diagrams and other visual content
The study materials contain some diagrams and graphs. Reading and interpreting these is an important part of the study of this module, and we assess this. We provide descriptions for all figures.
You could be required to search for, and make use of, third-party material online, and we assess this. We can provide alternatives for required/assessed research material to enable you to meet the learning outcomes of the module.
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 exam that you must take at an exam centre.
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.
