Enrol on the course to collect your badge

To enrol on this course (and to ensure you can collect your badge) you will need to follow the simple steps below:

  1. If you already have an OpenLearn Create account, just click on ‘Sign in’ to enrol and enter your user name and password.
  2. If you don’t have an Open University account (for OpenLearn, OpenLearn Create, or your Open University student or tutor account), create your new account here [Tip: hold Ctrl and click a link to open it in a new tab. (Hide tip)] .
  3. Follow the instructions, and when you have finished registration by reaching the My account page, simply close the browser window or tab.
  4. Refresh this page by clicking on the refresh button in your web browser – this usually looks like a recycling icon that features one arrow in a circle pointing to its tail, or two arrows in a circle pointing to each other. This will update your status so you can enrol.
  5. The enrolment button is in the top right-hand corner.

You are now enrolled and ready to start the course!
