Facebook – Im Back

Facebook - My Open University LifeWant to follow me on Facebook?

My Facebook page for My Open University Life went AWOL for some strange reason, I have no idea why or what happened to it. So, I have set up another one here My Open University Life on Facebook. So if your on why not like my Page and get updates when ever I make a post on my Blog.

On a different note, there are planty of groups and pages on Facebook for Open University courses. For example if your starting S104: Exploring Science in October the group is here S104 October 2013 Study Group. Im sure if your doing a course soon they will have a group just for your course.

I used the group back when I was doing S104  and for a few of my other courses and found them a great help. They are a good place for bouncing ideas around and to get help if your are stuck on a TMA etc. Dont be expecting answers though, most people will guide you on what to read or what to look out for but very few will be willing to just tell you the answer. Another good thing to get from them is advice on other course. Lots of people have done a lot of different courses and one is bound to have touched on a course your interested in.

So why not Like my page then go and see if your course has a group on Facebook? It will be one of the best things you could do to help your study, I promise.

You can now follow me on Facebook, who wants to Like me ???

I was playing around with the blog yesterday and noticed a new widget for Facebook, so after a little messing about I now have a Facebook page where you can follow My Open University Life.

All you have to do is click the Like button in the top right menu bar or just click on the Facebook logo and it will take you to my page and you can like it from there. It will mainly be for my blog posts but feel free to share it and post on my wall.

Ok its now time for study, I have a few hours today then a few hours tonight so hopefully get a good bit done. The cut off date for S283 TMA2 is 3 weeks today and by the looks of things im 3 week behind so its going to be tough, but not impossible :)

Results are in for S104 Exploring Science

We all got an E-mail last night saying that the results would be available in the next 24 hours, so of course everyone started to get excited. This morning I seen a few posts on the Facebook page on my phone all talking about there results. So I logged on and it was there …….. EMA 78% . So this means that I didn’t get my distinction but in all honesty im still happy with the result :)

My overall result was then OCAS 85% and OES 78%, but more importantly this now brings me up to 80 pts for my degree, so slowly but surely getting there.

Looking on the Facebook page there is a good few getting the distinctions but still more people getting the Pass mark so im in good company with my high pass mark.

Also with this mark I will be needing to get my ass in gear to try to get the best possible results from the level 2 and 3′s. This result didn’t matter for my degree as all I needed was a pass but the others modules will count towards the classification and they all have exams. Going by my 78% this would be a Pass 2 and this would have been a good result, but with the exams I think it will be tougher to get the high results. So S155, S283 and S282 here we come, this could be hard, but if it was easy then everyone would be doing it :)

S283: Planetary Science Facebook group

With S283 starting in a few months I did a quick search and found the Facebook group for it here OU S283: Planetary Science, I have also became an administrator for it so we need to get as many people as possible to join up.  It’s not as busy looking as the S104 group but it’s still got some posters on it and the number will probably increase when the course starts. So if your on Facebook and studying S283 in Nov 2011 I would say join up !!!

S104 on Facebook

I found the official S104 Exploring Science Facebook page yesterday. With the course forums pretty slow its good to get to talk with others doing the course and have a look at how they’re getting on with it. There is also a discussion where people are posting there results so I like looking at that just to see how im doing, and by the looks of it im not doing to bad :) , certainly not top of the class but also not bottom. One thing I did notice is that a good few are well ahead of me but as long as I stick to my calender I should hopefully be fine.  So if your on the Oct 2010 course why not join in and see what you think.
