Free online course on England in the time of Richard III

Post by Mythica » Fri October 25th, 2013, 10:24 am

Speaking of free online courses...

FutureLearn is offering one on England in the time of King Richard III: https://www.futurelearn.com/courses/eng ... third-2014

I might sign up for it, it sounds like they are trying to make FutureLearn very interactive and incorporate social networking tools, almost like an educational version of Twitter. You basically watch videos, listen to audio, and read articles, then discuss them with the "class" and occasionally be given tests.

I signed up it for a couple of weeks ago. There's a Facebook group for course participants; perhaps we could start a thread here if others from HFO sign up.
