    Your OU email is through Google Apps. On your StudentHome page, there should be a link to open your Google Apps site and/or change your Google nickname (which is also your email address).

    Hi

    I've enrolled to start in Oct for this module. I went through student finance, open uni paid half the course for me which was handy. You get Microsoft package (word, excel etc) free using the student email address which is good since I didn't have it.

    Just waiting patiently to start the course now like everyone else anxious to read that first question or task haha.

    Hi s.logan,

    I never knew we could get the Microsoft package, that's good! Is the online version or can you actually install it to your PC?

    Cheers

    Yes you can install it in on your PC it's great. You enter your email in and they send you a link to download and install it to your PC
