OpenLearning launches courses

OpenLearning, a new Australian startup, recently announced its first roster of 4 free Massive Open Online Courses (MOOCs): UNSW Computing 1, Observing and Analysing Performance in Sport, and two marketing courses.

UNSW Computing 1, an introductory computer science programming taught by Richard Buckland, a senior lecturer at the University of New South Wales, is already underway, but enrollment is still open.

Buckland, one of the founders of OpenLearning, is quoted on as saying that his MOOC site differs from other MOOC startups like Coursera and Udacity in being more “collaborative and social.”

OpenLearning’s plan is to offer both free “public” courses, and fee-based courses.

    Probably makes Carnegie-Mellon’s Open Learning Initiative wish they had registered the domain for themselves. Now some people will confuse them with this Australian outfit (happened to me).
