UK Open University FutureLearn MOOC Initiative
The UK Open University has been providing free on-line educational materials for decades. I looked at some of OU's courses and tools in 2010. It is a little sad to see that the hype about MOOCs has overshadowed OU's good work, to the point where they need to "launch" open on-line courses. Hopefully OU will not forget all it has learned about delivering quality on-line education with its new FutureLearn initiative and not simply ape the fashion for MOOCs.
