Libraries NI Learning Hub - The Open University Open Learn

The Libraries NI portal provides access to curated content for library users covering a range of topics and over time we hope that this portal will grow. The portal is part of The Open University’s (OU) free learning site OpenLearn which is an open educational resource, offering over a thousand courses and 15,000 hours of educational interactives, videos, articles, games and more.

OpenLearn provides a seamless fit with libraries, offering opportunities for everyone to learn at their own pace and to improve their journey of lifelong learning. Delivering bite-sized learning experiences designed to fit easily into daily life, OpenLearn breaks down barriers to education.

Content includes:
• 1000+ short courses (ranging from 1 - 100 hours of study)
• thousands of articles, quizzes and interactive games
• hundreds of videos and audios

Anyone can learn for free on OpenLearn but creating an account lets you set up a personal learning profile which tracks your course progress and gives you access to Statements of Participation and digital badges you earn along the way. Sign up today
