Sign up, sign in and enrol on the course

This Skills for Prosperity Kenya website is hosted by the OU platform OpenLearn Create, which means you need to sign in with a free OU account.

To enrol, first Sign up (register) for a free OU account by clicking on the ‘Sign up / Sign in’ button above and then ‘Create account’. Then return to this page, sign in, access the course below and enrol. When you sign in on this platform, it pulls information about you from the central OU registration database (your name, email address and OU computer username – OUCU, your progress on the course, and the digital Badges and Certificates you have achieved).

Edit your name and email address

The name on your printable Certificate of Completion pulls through automatically from your registration information. If you need to change your name or contact email address in your OU registered account please go to and amend your details. This will pull through to the OpenLearn Create database after you login to OpenLearn Create again (the change can take time to appear). Please note, currently the system does not pull all forenames through into the OpenLearn Create database so if you want your middle name(s) to appear in any Certificate you achieve, you need to put your middle name(s) in the surname field.
