    free OU courses

    The Open University have some free courses available under a scheme called Open Learn;

    OpenLearn - The Open University

    I personally haven't had a chance to look through all the contents there (there is a lot) but the ones I've looked at seem like they're interesting, not too difficult and for free i can't complain. There's basic stuff in there and some more advanced stuff to get your teeth into in a wide number of topics.

    If you have a spare half an hour have a look through and see what you think. I believe you can access all of the content on Open Learn without needing to register or log in.

    Hope this post is useful to someone.

    The OU is not the only University to do this, for example MIT shares alot of it's courseware for free. The down side is that if you want the qualification, you have to pay for it

    Yeah - that is a down side, but if you just want to learn something new or dip your fingers into lots of subject to see which you like the best it's not a bad idea really.
