This is really great stuff and an invaluable resource for education. Should be appreciated much more than some nonsense saving deals...
I've just finished writing one of these. I am a university tutor. They are taken from OU materials which are abridged. The course I wrote was based on a small section of a module in a Master module. Some are a little dated but the aim is to interest and educate. The course "Analyzing skid-marks" always seems to get a lot of interest. Seriously though I have found the modules on finance and law interesting and some of the tecchie ones worth doing

Given you are who you say you are, why on earth would you say "Some are a little dated but the aim is to interest" ?
Some were written a few years ago so have material which is scanned in or simple pdfs or Word documents, The more recent ones are much more visual and interactive. So I can honestly say some areas are little dated in delivery rather than content but this should not affect the interest level.
PS they are excellent and free

There are lots of free courses showing up on sites like Udemy too: a megathread here: https://www.hotukdeals.com/deals/175-free-courses-at-udemy-promo-codes-included-in-links-3262283Good luck!


Ok so how would I put free OU & UDEMY courses on my CV as it'll end up getting long if I write them all one by one.

Either just add the relevant ones for that application, or attach a last page with a line under your education section pointing the reader to the long list on the last page. Showing that you're willing to apply yourself is a plus, and even if the courses aren't all relevant, it might start up a conversation making the interview flow a little more easily.
Very useful thanks
