This Step introduces you to the TIDE programme and to OpenLearn Create. OpenLearn Create is a platform that anyone can use to create online courses. OpenLearn is a sister platform to OpenLearn Create and hosts learning from The Open University (UK) exclusively. You may find that the course has a different approach to learning and teaching than you have encountered before.
