Excellent find Shakazulu. Thanks for posting.

Makes sense, they are the "open university" after all

thanks for this

Nice one

Thanks

Thought it was common knowledge. I've been registered for over 12 months and they have just publicised it more, added a new front end to the web page.
Anyway, voted hot

I need Athens access, but it's expensive...

Yes "open" meaning open to anyone wanting to complete any course they run i.e. no formal entry requirements required to do a degree/postgraduate course etc.

Can you actuall get a qualification out of this?

You need to enrol with the OU on a structured programme of modules, and sit assessments. The online materials are just part of doing a module with the OU - there are also books you need to read and assessments to write up, etc.

motivation to do that course now :-)

Thanks for the post OP. Briefly looked at two courses but they are really short. I chose topics that I already know to see how useful they are. The information provided under the courses I looked at were too brief. Its more like point form notes that are useful only if you attend the class in person. But nevertheless its another resource one can still benefit from.
