OU Corporate & Employer Services have recently released a Fact of the Day iGoogle widget. Add it to your iGoogle homepage and benefit from a snippet of knowledge and a link to an OpenLearn study unit every day. Employers love bite-sized learning that their employees can do on the job. Its a good way to keep people aware of what knowledge is available to them on OpenLearn as well as providing those all important small talk facts for business lunches. Did you know..? Soon, everyone, everywhere will be small talking about OpenLearn… there are already a few hundred people using it.
One satisfied, albeit anonymous user states:
It’s really a free course of the day! Really liked this – rather than just a fact you can go on and learn about the topic for free (downloadable courses, materials etc.). The Open University has a very good reputation for quality content so fair play for releasing this – thanks!
Once again the Hirst proves to be a pioneer having launched OpenLearn daily back in the day. This offers daily chunks of learning rather than a daily fact but a similar idea.
