Nearly finished!!!

Finally! Tho I seem to have missed summer

Because of the success of my OU photography course, I decided to "have a bash" at another course with them. Since the start of February I have been slogging away at what can only loosely described as an IT course. I seem to have spent so long typing "reports" for this and that, that it seems to have sucked any creativity from me

The good news is, I am on my final assignment, and by the end of Sept, the whole thing will be handed in, and I will hopefully never have to do anything like that again! (unless I totally mess up this assignment, and then a resit may be needed )

So heres hoping the weather will change soon, so I can get out with the camera and re-learn everything, as I have forgotten so much

Re: Nearly finished!!!

Ditto with the coursework, hope it goes well.

Many weeks of writing, photographing and fanning my smoking printer with AP magazine came to a head this morning. All 100 pages x2 copies handed in for my MSc dissertation.

I am now on a DIY/photo mission until I start work.

Wow... 100 pages, I struggle with a 2000 word report! Are you studying anything interesting? (If you dont mind me asking )
Good luck with it.

I've promised myself extended time with my camera once mine is handed in... I just hope the weather co-operates

I would be interested in your view of the OU course, as I have considered it in the past (along with some other providers) but was never sure if they were worthwhile doing.

Re: Nearly finished!!!

Which OU course? This is my 4th with them. I think it depends a lot on what you are studying.

The photography one was very well organised, and I'm hoping they do a higher level one as I felt I learned a lot.

This course I am on now, I thought was an IT course, but I've not enjoyed it.

If it is the photography course in particular that you are interested in, I'll post a "review" here it you want.

Re: Nearly finished!!!

I would be interested to hear about the photography course as well. So I hope you don't mind posting a precis, Tracey.

I could happily not hear about IT ever again, after 30+ years in the business!

Ciao ... Joh

Re: Nearly finished!!!

I'll be happy to, but let me get a little further along with my final assignment. I'd hate to fail at this late stage... If I havent posted anything in a week, give me a shout to remind me
