Accessing the course on a mobile device 

Our students can expect to have access to lecture materials, video lectures, discussion boards, quizzes and submission areas via web browsers on mobile devices (such as tablets and smartphones), assuming they have access to a good mobile or Wi-Fi signal. 

If you are planning to use a tablet as your primary device, you must ensure that it has a reasonably good specification for accessing the internet and viewing videos. 

Your tablet should have word processing software. 

While access is available via smartphones, we advise that students do not use a smartphone as their only device, as the screen size will cause difficulties in some aspects of the course, such as essay writing, and may make some areas of the course difficult to read.
