Open University Free Online Courses

OpenLearn is a free learning platform, delivered by The Open University as part of its Royal Charter commitment to support the well being of the educational community. 

Since its launch in 2006, OpenLearn has become an integrated part of The Open University, with the site attracting almost 75 million visitors – many of which become a formal student, strengthening the journey between informal and formal learning.

The OpenLearn team originate, commission and develop content that unites faculty and University priorities with areas of topical and general interest.
