OpenLearn is the home of free learning from The Open University. But what does that really mean?

Everything you'll find on the site has been created for The Open University with input from our subject experts.

It's here for you to use, for free. And, as far as we're able, we make it free for you to download, remix, and use how you want to - non-commercially, of course. Read more about our Creative Commons licences.

Some of our content is drawn directly from the same courses students study - giving you a taste of The Open University experience. Browse a list of our free courses.

We're also the home of OU broadcast partnerships - with the BBC and other broadcasters. See what's on in the next few days.

This is the place to come to order free posters and booklets the OU produces to support our programmes. Order or download free print items.

And we have hundreds of activities, videos, audio, opinions and discussions across all our subject areas to explore. What sort of things? Here's what's popular right now:
