  • We’re delighted by the support we’re getting from the university sector in the UK, and proud of the quality of institutions we’ve brought on board to date <br /> We’re also hoping to announce several more partners soon – including Liverpool, Newcastle and Auckland. <br /> With your help, we’re confident that we can also bring in several more international partners to broaden our global appeal <br />
  • We’re working with our three non-university partners to work out how we can release their materials to our universities <br /> We think that, on behalf of the FL consortium, we can do a lot to negotiate access on behalf of universities <br /> Preliminary discussions with the BBC are also underway, and we hope to have an announcement ready on that soon <br /> And we have a variety of different corporates, cultural and content bodies we are working with <br />
  • We’ve got 8 courses running in the remainder of 2013, including computer science, psychology… … dentistry and marketing <br /> We’ve also got another 12 courses lined up ready to go in 2014, and will be working with universities to identify more. <br />
  • Alpha 2 – Week 1. Two courses – OU Ecosystems and UEA Secret Power of Brands <br /> A lot of our learners are also using mobile devices <br /> We believe that, at launch, we will offer the best mobile experience of any MOOC provider, allowing us to make learning convenient and accessible any time, anywhere <br />
