FutureLearn adds brand new titles to its growing list of free online courses

FutureLearn, the first UK-led provider of massive open online courses (MOOCs), today added seven new titles to its free, web-based offering, including a number of courses aimed at building professional knowledge. The diverse list also covers the popular areas of Arts and Humanities, and Science, Technology, Engineering and Maths (STEM).

Developed by some of the world’s leading universities, the new titles are all scheduled to begin in March next year. Together with previously released titles, this new set brings the number of free courses currently available on FutureLearn to 36. FutureLearn will continue to add new courses to its line up throughout 2014.

The FutureLearn course experience centres on social interaction, whereby people learn actively by engaging in conversations around the learning material. The website has also been designed to work on smartphones and tablets, as well as desktop computers, so that learners can enjoy the same high quality user experience, regardless of their screen size.

FutureLearn is wholly owned by The Open University. The website combines the best elements of the social web with The Open University’s 44 years of expertise in distance and open learning.
