Abstract

The course T324 Keeping ahead in ICT is a 300 hour, level 3 (final year undergraduate), distance learning course offered by the UK Open University for the first time in February 2007. It is aimed primarily at equipping students with advanced information searching and evaluation skills that will serve them well in professional life. The course consists of three, 100 hour blocks of study, increasingly relying on materials not written specially by the OU, such as newspaper, conference and journal articles, websites, and other electronic resources. Some elements in each block are designed to change from year to year, in order to retain currency. This paper will present in particular the novel aspects of Block 2 (covering wireless sensor networks) and Block 3 (dealing with ICTs in their socio-technical context).
