Preparing for Birth and Children with Free Online Subjects

Open Universities is well known in Australia for providing distance education.  May years ago they provided content via the television in the early hours of the morning on the public broadcast channels.  But with the age of the internet their delivery mechanism has modernized to use the internet.

As a promotional tool, they have free classes in many topics that you can enroll in.  It is on a separate website called Open2Study.  If you are planning, or already have a Splendid Family, then two of their free classes will be of particular interest to you.

Despite being based in Australia, there is no restriction on who can enroll.  I've enrolled in both of these classes myself to get a heads-up on giving birth and the development of children and the other students come from all over the world - India, China, USA, Colombia are a few countries that students are from studying these classes.

The classes started on the 17th of February, 2014 but you can still enroll.  They include videos covering content, pop quizzes and assessment at the end of each module that is a multiple choice quiz.  You can watch the videos at your own pace and the course finishes up on the 18th of March, 2014.  No doubt new classes will start after those dates if you miss out on the classes this time.

You can't get any credit for the classes, but my experience of them so far is that they are very professional. And if you were toying with the idea of doing some more study, its a great way to dip your toes back into study if your memories of study are distant and you are a bit nervous - it doesn't cost a thing and failure to complete a class or pass wont go on your academic record!
