We have a long-standing commitment to providing, and widening access to, high quality online learning opportunities through open education and OER. We are proud to offer a wide range of free short online courses as part of our commitment to community outreach and knowledge exchange. Since 2012, over 4 million learners around the world have enrolled in our 80 free online courses on partner platforms Coursera, FutureLearn and EdX.
