Video Supported Courses

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!
