Since 1969 The Open University has been a pioneer in making learning materials freely available through its successful partnership with the BBC, and The OpenLearn website, launched in October 2006 as a pilot project, offers today 600 free online courses. Aimed at making freely available to any user a number of interactive and social networking tools, this site features a collections of units including documents, exercises, multimedia presentations and other options specifically designed for distance learning. Topics range from Arts and History to Modern Languages, from Health and Lifestyle to Science and Nature.

With an impressive outlook and a high level of usability, OpenLearn provides a great e-learning environment.
