Practical lab-based teaching at a distance covering engineering, electronics, control, materials and robotics.
the OpenEngineering Lab is a fantastic way to add the additional dimension of 'hand-on' to the module. With distance learning it is notoriously difficult to supply students with hardware kits - the OEL is a great solution. I have found the experiments illuminating and interesting - they have added to my understanding of the excellent course material. It also offers a safe environment. It has allowed me to continue with the module even though I am on holiday in Barbados - truly offering a global reach. Great stuff!
In addition to teaching on Open University modules our academics are engaged in ground breaking research that benefits individuals and society.
