The OpenLearn content & channel team: bringing you the finest in free, online learning since 1999.

Collapse biography

Since 1999, with the launch of Open2.net, The Open University has been sharing free, online learning inspired by the university's courses, our broadcast partnerships and the world beyond. In 2006, the LearningSpace joined Open2.net online, releasing material directly from courses under a Creative Commons licence. In 2010, the two sites came together under the OpenLearn banner to offer a single website hub for all the University's free learning. The OpenLearn Content & Channel team works hard to add to to the breadth of material available, and to help users find their way around the site.
