Futurelearn (MOOC)


The University of Twente has partnered with FutureLearn to deliver Massive Open Online Courses. We see MOOCs as a means to show our unique capabilities and expertise for a worldwide audience. Joining a course on the Futurelearn platform is very straightforward and is free of charge.


Via the TELT team support and advice is available should you wish to deliver an online course on FutureLearn or if you want to discuss your plans and ideas.

FutureLearn is a European provider for free online courses; they are based in London (UK). The platform is geared towards social learning, whereby the learner actively engages in online learning activities.

FutureLearn is not a replacement of our on-campus learning management system, Blackboard (or Canvas in the near future). Futurelearn is “open” for everyone and facilitates the delivery of 100% online courses. Whereby Blackboard is used to facilitate our own courses that also have a campus-based experience.
