Submitting assignments online

Most modules include the online submission of assignments, which is a simple and quick process. You will use the OU's electronic tutor-marked assignment (eTMA) system, which holds a copy and record of all your assignments.

You can try out the system before the first assignment is due by sending in a 'dummy' file. This gives you the chance to practise how to use the system, and to see how your assignment will look once your tutor has marked it and added feedback to it.

You will be given information on how to use the eTMA system, and can get help from the OU Computing Helpdesk if you have any queries (see current Computing Guide and new Computing Guide. Both require login details).
