University of Nottingham offering free courses online
THE University of Nottingham is to offer free courses online as part of a new venture by the Open University.
The university has joined Futurelearn — an online platform offering free course content from 17 UK universities.
The Open University has also signed an agreement allowing it to develop online courses using resources from the British Library.
The news was announced by Prime Minister David Cameron during a major business and skills mission to India.

Mr Cameron said: "Britain boasts some of the best universities in the world. This innovative new offer led by The Open University will mean that Indian students can access some of the best teaching and learning online from their home in Mumbai or Delhi.
"I'm delighted that Futurelearn is expanding to include more British universities and the British Library. I hope it will encourage many more Indian students to take the next step and study with a UK university."
Professor David Greenaway, Vice-Chancellor of The University of Nottingham, said: "Futurelearn has the potential to be transformational.
"The breadth of access will capture a wider cohort of learners than is traditionally possible. The University of Nottingham's unique global footprint will be further enhanced by this development."
The First Futurelearn courses open later this year.
