Free OpenLearn courses from the Open University
What are the advantages of studying a free OpenLearn course?
Courses are either adapted extracts from The Open University courses or complete courses on OpenLearn only. Free courses are available now, you can start right away, or whenever suits you. You can work through at your own pace - if you want to do a burst of ten hours in one sitting or want to spread studying over a longer period that's your choice.
You will get the most from OpenLearn if you register (registration is free). Registering will give you full access to a range of features that are not available to guests, such as commenting on articles and enrolling on free courses. From your MyOpenLearn profile you will be able to track your progress and download an activity record. You can easily unenrol from these activities at any time. You do not need to register if you just want to read content without participating in activities.
