OpenLearn gives you free access to learning materials from The Open University. Our shared vision was free online education, open to anyone, anywhere in the world. OpenLearn is the result and we have since reached over 23 million people. In the first two years, OpenLearn grew to include over 8000 study hours of learning materials from Open University courses. The website continues to grow with new course materials being published regularly in our OpenLearn 'Try' section. In 2010 we created OpenLearn by merging with open2.net, the Open University website that has supported our BBC broadcasts since 1999. Combined, OpenLearn gives access to topical and interactive content, from expert blogs, to videos and games. This 'open media' often links to our BBC television and radio programmes.
