The provider of so-called Moocs (massive open online courses) says interest has been rising sharply, with 20% more UK students in the last three months of 2014. FutureLearn carries free online courses from universities including Warwick, King’s College London and Sheffield. “We’re just at the start,” said chief executive Simon Nelson. FutureLearn has reached the million-student milestone after launching in September 2013. Set up by the Open University, it offered a UK platform for online courses in a field that was becoming dominated by US university networks.
