Time To Learn

We’ve had a visitor here since Monday so I haven’t been able to blog as much as I had hoped, but I have sneaked away to tell you about this:

The Open University has teamed up with universities around the globe to offer free online short courses.  I have signed up for three, with staggered start dates; the first begins in November.  

Join me!  It’s all online so you don’t have to live in the UK.  

Here’s the link: FutureLearn.

    That is so exciting! I believe M.I.T has offered free online courses as well, it affords such wonderful opportunities. 🙂

    I see they have one on the Higgs Boson – that’s a sort of American buffalo, isn’t it?
    But they don’t seem to offer a doctorate at the end.

    Thanks so much for sharing the link. There are two courses that interest me.
    The mind is flat: the shocking shallowness of human psychology
    The secret power of brands

    • I looked at your second choice but I have no interest in brands (as a result of no money to spend on them 🙂 )

    I will check them out! I have really enjoyed some of the courses offered through iTunes University. There isn’t quite the same level of commitment, but the opportunity to audit some university courses in topics I might enjoy exploring has been really satisfying. Hope you enjoy yours! 🙂

    Ooh, some interesting ones there! I think I’ll sign up for Introduction to Ecosystems and Sustainability, Society and You. Hopefully I’ll actually keep up with them despite there being no money wasted if I don’t…

I welcome your comments but be warned: I'm menopausal and as likely to snarl as smile. Wine or Maltesers are an acceptable bribe; or a compliment about my youthful looks and cheery disposition will do in a pinch.
