I was reading an interesting article on BBC Education News the other day called ” Massive online courses set sights on sixth formers”. Whilst reading it, I spotted something in their context about online courses on FutureLearn.
As you do, you end up browsing and researching. I have to say, FutureLearn has a brilliant platform to aid and support younger generation to succeed. They are all about providing online courses from leading universities and cultural institutions from all over the world. They are wanting to help you make fresh discoveries and form new ideas. They have a variety of courses; from business to creative arts, and politics to health and psychology. Take a look for yourself …. https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/categories
I think it’s an efficient way to open students eyes to a variety of subjects; developing skills in their interested subject, learning about our society, economy and history, how to start your own business and marketing strategies, and many more. I know we live in a society and economy where jobs are scarce or they are asking certain education and skills requirements, which some students can’t afford to go to Universities or may not have the relevant grades. But with FutureLearn, they allow you to learn about a variety of subjects and allow students to broaden their horizon and what avenue of work they can go into.
