A number of Oxford Open Learning courses contain, as a bonus feature, a spectacular array of educational films, all produced by a partner company called Twig.
There are more than a thousand Twig films, covering almost every required topic in Mathematics, Geography and across the Science curriculum. These short films are produced to the highest standard and enhance the learning experience greatly.
The Oxford Open Learning courses which are enriched by Twig include extensive links to appropriate films (and other supporting material), lesson by lesson. The student hops from the course materials to the films and back again.
To access the films, students need a special password, supplied at enrolment. Students also need internet access and an e-mail account to benefit from this extraordinary resource which is offered as a “free” extra to students on the relevant courses.
The combination of Oxford Open Learning materials and Twig films, plus unrivalled tutor support, makes for the ultimate distance learning experience. No other programme can give you a better chance of success!

The Maths IGCSE course gently guides the student through basic mathematical skills, progressing on to more advanced material as the student’s skills and abilities develop. Each lesson begins with a set of clearly stated objectives and an explanation of its place in the overall programme of study.
How does the heart pump blood around the body? How do organisms develop, grow and reproduce? Investigate the answers to these and other fascinating questions in a course which focuses on life itself. This stimulating course is packed full of drawings, diagrams and graphs to help you master the topic easily.
The course is designed to develop a positive attitude to human biology in the twenty–first century. It attempts to look at the way biology affects your everyday life and how you can evaluate the scientific material that you come across in newspapers, magazines and on the television.
