Massive, open, online courses (known as MOOCs) are short courses that are delivered online for free. They don't have any entry requirements and are open to anyone anywhere in the world with an internet connection. We want to give people access to Nottingham's academics and learning resources with course materials drawn from real modules and ebooks.
Distance and online courses
Our courses cover a range of topics and are delivered by academics across the University, sometimes in collaboration with experts from external organisations.
Our current MOOC courses are listed below.
You can also visit the Future Learn website for information on other courses that are available.

Our courses are delivered by FutureLearn, the first UK-led, multi-institutional Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) platform.
The FutureLearn proposition is to increase access to Higher Education for students in the UK and around the world by offering a diverse range of high quality courses through a single website.
This online course will illustrate how the Qur’an situates itself as part of, and as a correction to, the religious discourse of the Jewish and Christian communities of Late Antique Arabia.
The course will use the Qur’an, as well as Jewish and Christian historical documents, to reconstruct the religious landscape to which the Muslim scripture reacts in a pointed, precise and nuanced way.
This will give you a historically more informed understanding of nascent Islam, and will allow you to reconsider many of theological and cultural tenets of Late Antique Judaism and Christianity
