I find it upsetting that I am writing this evaluation of the OU. I am a student of the University ( 6 years +). I have two degrees already ((BA) one from a mains stream university the second (BCL) from the OU.
My four years of Law were amazing, great tutors, well informed and interested in their students.
I have this academic year started IT with the OU, poorly organized and rude tutors, who sit on their laurels and come to tutorials with nothing prepared, expecting students to run the sessions. if you have the misfortune to miss a session then its tough as the tutor will not provide any material from the day ( as he has none) I have a disabled child
(single parent) and attending tutorials not always possible,especially when I work as well as a teacher.
when I am paying a lot of money to attend a course the minimum requirement I believe is that all students have access to equality in education the fact that this tutor thought he could attend having nothing prepared is a disgrace and an insult to all learners.
This is made even worse by the fact that the OU now believe they can charge over two thousand pounds for a course ( with material that is to be honest very out of date and provide no support is a joke, for a university which prides itself on its distance learning credentials.
Having spoken with the OU about my concerns their view is that their tutors are not obliged to provide any notes nor even prepare anything.
what does that say about an educational institute?
