The Open University UK

The Open University was the world’s first successful distance teaching university, founded on the belief that communications technology could bring high quality degree-level learning to people who had not had the opportunity to attend traditional campus universities.

Today, course delivery takes full advantage of the internet, with students learning online and on mobile devices, and using high-tech tools like the virtual microscope.

OU content is also freely available through OpenLearn and popular social media such as iTunes U and Youtube, and as part of FutureLearn – an international university collaboration to bring online learning to a global audience.
