Interested in a new topic and want to dig deeper? Or maybe you're passionate about a subject. Whether it’s a five minute exploration or a 50 hour expedition into learning that you’re after, you’ll find it on OpenLearn. And for free.

OpenLearn is the Open University's web access point for its open and free online resources. Established in 2006 it started as a two-year experiment to understand how we can operate in a more open manner and what benefits it brings for learners, educators and The Open University.

Since then OpenLearn has become an integrated part of The Open University attracting more than 5 million unique visitors each year.
