For the love of learning

Tilly Bud, aka The Laughing Housewife posted about this the other day and I thought it might interest some of my readers as well.

The Open University (a UK-based distance learning university) has teamed up with several universities from around the globe plus some other organisations, such as the British Library, to offer free online short courses.

I have signed up for Introduction to Ecosystems, a six week course starting in November and am considering also doing Sustainability, Society and You in January. England in the Time of King Richard III looks interesting, too.

As I said, it’s all free, and the courses are online so you can join in from anywhere in the world.
