What is a MOOC?

A massive open online course (MOOC) is a free online course that supports learning in a variety of different subjects.  The courses are available on FutureLearn, which is the UK’s social learning platform, wholly owned by the Open University, UK with the benefit of over 40 years of their experience in distance learning and online education. The aim is to connect learners from across the globe with educators and with each other. 

You can buy a Statement of Participation for these online courses — a personalised, printed certificate to show that you’ve taken part. You must mark more than 50% of all course steps as complete and attempt all test questions to be eligible to buy a statement of participation.

Over 122,000 learners registered for our first MOOC, and participation levels were some of the highest that FutureLearn has seen since their launch in December 2012.

What are the British Council MOOCs?

The British Council is working closely with FutureLearn and its university partners to facilitate students’ access to British Council English language content and assessment. 

Are there any registration charges?

The MOOCs are free, and can be accessed by students anywhere provided they have an internet connection. You can log in for your sessions on desktops, laptops and tablets. But, we recommend you check whether the course meets your requirements before you sign up. The details are available on the respective course pages.
