Hi All,

Is there any other poor sucker undertaking M358 this year.

My Firstclass account has still not been created for the correct server, so I can not get in touch
with another M358er.

Please feel free to drop me a line

best regards

Jase

ask though.

Which server do you have access to? You can access the M358 conferences from servers 1, 2 or 3
because they are OUSA conferences and not course run conferences.

If you have access to any of those three servers, then you'll find the M358 conferences via OU
Shield -> OUSA Study Rooms -> Study Rooms Door -> Maths&Computing Rm.

That's not true. All OU students are given access to Firstclass regardless of whether or not their
course requires access. The only restriction is which servers one gets access to because different
servers cover different subjects.

Anyone can get Firstclass, but it is only included in your course mailing if it is required in
your course. My First 2 years I didn't have it. You can always ask the ou for a copy if you
don't get one.

Thankyou all for your replies.

I have a firstclass account already as this is my fourth year.

I rather stupidly thought that all conferences were run by the OU, which added to my confused state.

Thanks to Julie for informing me of the OUSA conferences, I had no idea.

Well the First Class administrator have set up an account for server 3 for me, but the M358 content
is only news

thanks again

I wasn't offered first class until i took a course that required internet access. I certainly didn't
get it for m358. Never even got a list of web sites that might have helped. Good course though.

I read an article in Sesame about 8yrs ago about the OU conferencing system that was open to all
students. At that time it was COSY, then it changed to FC. I have only twice in tht time had a
course that required internet access, but I have used the OU systems for the whole period. I don't
know if you bother to read Sesame, but there have been frequent refs to FC in it over the years.

Ring First Class help desk (LTS) at the OU and check that your tutor has a conference. If not use the OUSA conference that you will find through the web brouser access from the student portal. Lots of talk going on in there

Does this mean that there are two sets of M358 conferences?

I have found one which is heavily moderated and discussion of TMA questions is censored. I do not expect to be given the answers etc but it does seem very useless having a conference and not being able to discussTMA questions.

I am also doing MT262 and there is a MT262 Student Friendly Site on MSN which is so much more helpful than the OU's own site. Does anyone know of anything similar for M358?

There is indeed an un-official group on msn:

Not particularly busy but very friendly!
