Open University - Certificate of Higher Education in Computing and IT - Study Books?Watch
I've enrolled with open university to take the higher education in computing and IT course. If all goes all well i will attempt to go the route of diploma > degree. I've been out of education for 20 years, i really should have taken this type of course years ago.
The course i have enrolled in doesnt start until October. I was hoping somebody who has taken the course or anybody could offer advice on study books or learning materials, something that i can study now which will help when the course starts?
Can anybody offer an insight into areas i could be learning now via videos or books etc that would prepare me for the course?
I appreciate all the help
These are the first 2 modules of the course:
Compulsory modules (90 credits)
- Introduction to computing and information technology 1 (TM111)
- Introduction to computing and information technology 2 (TM112)
regards to TM112.
Block 1 :
will be advancing knowledge from tm111 , which topics such as binary and why its used, which will lead to Hardware. which in turn leads to a better understanding on whats in fact going on 'under the hood'
language of choice here is python, you will learn how to analyse with python and complete a small project
This blocks focus is on security and dealing with cyber crime i would guess this is only going to be a introduction.
Reading this from http://www.open.ac.uk/courses/modules/tm112 if you wanted to check it out yourself.
I also am enrolling on the same modules as yourself in October starting TM111 and then leading into TM112 , although i was also thinking of picking up MU124 at the same time as TM112 depending on how i find work load. I will be happy to help if i at all can
Hello, I am starting this in October so am also looking at information, books, short courses etc that could get me started in the meantime.
(ignore the paid certificate option, you don't need that)
