I wouldn't even know where to start.
I'm doing a degree in ICT with the OU. There's no entry requirements. When you register on a course you get assigned a tutor who you can contact via phone, email or the OU's first class software which will be provided, you then get the course materials and start your work.
You have to keep up with the course timetable as there are tutor marked and computer marked assignments every 6 weeks or so, then there is an end of course assessment where the majority of the marks come from.
It's canny like, the course material that I have had has been well put together and it's not too much of a chore to get through.
