STEM2020 - Providing skills through an online Mathematics and Statistics learning community

The School of Mathematics and Statistics at The Open University is constantly exploring ways of engaging students outside the ‘classroom’ environment. One initiative was to provide an online subject site to provide students with a place to access wider skills and knowledge. Online discussions in this site have flourished creating a vibrant learning community. This also provides students with the opportunity to engage in issues such as curriculum development and delivery of student support leading to improvements in the structure of mathematics and statistics qualifications, influencing the content of new modules, more effective assessment strategies, and better ways of supporting students.
