Just joined up today, as this forum seems the best for advice and opinions from many different people.
I started m150 and t175 level 1 courses early this year and completed them - hopefully I did well!
This is all going towards the OU's open degree. I did originally chose computing, but some of the courses weren't what I wanted. Anyhow, Im interested in all things web/internet, from designing webpages, to how things work behind the scenes - everything in general. The OU did do a set of short courses , 6 in all, that comprised C39 (if i remember correctly), with each covering an interesting range of subjects relating to the web. Due to these coming to the end, i have missed the first in the 6, although i could still do the rest, but wont be able to claim the certificate that goes with them all, but its really the individual courses im interested in.
So my question is (if your still reading!) - is, would it be still worth it doing the rest, although ive missed the first one ? Ive checked over tt280 which was the first of the 6, and alot of it seems very similar to knowledge i already have. Obviously it wont be the same as actually having done/completed it, but would it still be worth doing the rest?
I dont see or know of any replacement OU courses coming up in the near future that would satisfy my interest in 'web/internet' study, so at the moment these ones are my last chance to learn something. (for the forseeable future anyhow).
Thanks for reading anyhow, and any advice appreciated!
But we haven't even met!
