OpenLearn - new study materials for 2008

The open educational resources movement has received a further boost now that OpenLearn has made some new study materials available for 2008.

Since 1969, The Open University has been a pioneer in making learning materials freely available through its successful partnership with the BBC. Many of the television and radio programmes are already supported by free internet activities and print materials. OpenLearn , which started in 2005 with a grant from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation, has continued and extended this vision.
"We wanted to use our knowledge of the latest technologies in education to extend our mission to be open to people, places, methods and ideas. The vision was free online education."

The following are the new study units for January:
