I was waiting for this course for around 18 months as I wanted to expand my knowledge. I love the Open University and the Tutors are excellent however this course is for primary school children. The course is also about 5 years out of date!!! In the world of IT 6-9 months is a long time 5 years might as well be a thousand years. Much of what is taught is highly irelevant, and the TMAs are written based on resources that are out of date and currently in places simply wrong.
The miraculous “sense” board is a stripped down Arduino with all the wonderful function, power and versatility stripped away so it will do little more than flash a few lights. As I said great as a primary school teaching aid - useless as an introduction to IT.
