I find that one of the saddest things about taking an Open University course is that all the work and thought that people put into discussions in the course forums are just thrown away at the end of the course. This seems particularly poor from a learning perspective, as some of the best sources of aid and information for new students would be students who have successfully progressed through the course.
Why think of this now? I happened on an interesting little web article related to a course (M873), but have no obvious way of sharing that information with tutors and future students on this course. This just seems a shame.
Oh well, maybe someone might make the connection if I post the link here
