Can I participate in OERu courses for free without taking the formal assessments?

Yes! We encourage you to join OERu courses and ‘sip and dip’ into topics you find interesting. We welcome your participation in the online learning interactions - even if you’re not taking the course for formal credit. Learning as a community is far more fun than learning alone. The OERu offers a great way to experience university-level study, without spending any money or feeling obligated to complete the formal assessments. You have the freedom to manage the level of effort you put into your studies. You will also have the opportunity to complete the formal assessments, should you want to consider gaining formal credit for your learning from one of our recognised partners.
