Sharing 50 years of education
The open learning revolution is gathering pace. Around the world, communities are searching for tools to help them study the subjects they love in the way that suits them. Meanwhile, countries are seeking to set up their own open universities. One answer lies in an incredible resource waiting to be tapped.
The Open University archive is vast, with over 500 hours of video alone. It contains nearly 50 years of rare video, audio, images and course material. This unique treasury of knowledge is just as relevant today as it was in the 1970s. Yet, due to lack of funds, virtually none of it is accessible. With your support, we will digitise our archive and share it online with a world of learners. It will be free to access, for all. We’ll also include study tips, advice and inspirational stories from past students, to encourage hesitant new learners to follow their dreams. Millions want to join the movement in online learning – it’s our time to help.
