Very interesting and taught me things I didn't think I really knew, but had some idea about.
Some useful reminders have been included. I especially like the short learning objectives which get straight to the point although I suspect that users with limited ICT understanding might like further clarification.
Teaching exemplars are useful, solid info in the module as a whole too.
Gained insight into the device components and operating systems.
The module was really clear and well phrased with good learning activities.
It is very detailed and everything is explained clearly! The videos could be longer and give more examples.
Makes you think! I'm so used to just switching a device on I've never given consideration to the names of the different components
Good quiz at the end.
A good module, lots of information and useful links,
