Open Learning Champions

This community is for Open Learning Champions (OLCs) or anyone who makes flexible use of open educational resources to deliver new learning in familiar spaces.

The Open University offers an abundance of free online resources but potential learners may find it difficult to navigate the options available to them. Our experience is that support from a trusted person can help learners plan their journeys. This is the idea behind Open Learning Champions.

The Open University in Scotland works in partnership with a range of organisations who share their commitment to making learning available to all, including carers centres, third sector organisations, community learning and development, colleges and others.

This space is intended to help you share what works well, learn from each other and make the most of peer support.  See Your Role as Open Learning Champion for more information about how to use this space.
