Recently I received an email from the Open University about a free online course. It seems that they have created their own version of Coursera called FutureLearn. I’ve started the Start Writing Fiction course as I’d considered signing up for a courses like this in the past. The software is slow and some aspects of the course are overly simplistic but the writing exercises have been interesting and I think I’ll keep going and see how it works out. I do love this trend to offer free education.
