In 2010, OpenLearn merged with, the OU / BBC learning portal. Two years later we have welcomed a new member to the family - the LearningSpace. The result is this brand new site containing all the usual articles, videos, audios, games and topical news, as well as all the free LearningSpace courses.

We’re launching the new site in beta, meaning that there are some things that we are still working on. Despite this, we feel we have enough ready to make it a useful and engaging site for you. We hope you agree.

So what are we working on? Like the LearningSpace, you should be able to enrol on any free course and record your progress. We're still working on this functionality but it doesn't stop you from accessing and studying over 650 free courses. You may also notice that you are unable to post any comments on free courses or rate and share them with your friends. These functions will be in place as soon as possible.

We very much welcome your feedback. If you have any thoughts, please leave a message using the Comments facility near the bottom of this page. And if you have further questions about the new OpenLearn site, please visit our Frequently Asked Questions page.

We look forward to your thoughts.
