The rumour is true – Open2Study students are blitzing the world of free online education with record numbers completing their subjects.
Unlike students from other platforms, about one in five Open2Study students are not only completing their subjects, they’re also passing.
Is this really a big deal? YES! Free online offerings from countries like the US, UK and Europe, where less than 9% of students complete subjects, are looking on as this Aussie innovator helps to keep you interested and engaged in study.
What makes your experience with us different? Well we’d love to hear what you think.
To us, it’s about giving you the best possible online education experience – and that’s irrespective of the fact that it’s free.
It’s about finding the right topics at the right level, creating short easy to digest videos and offering a classroom designed to give you everything you need at your fingertips.
Maybe it’s because you’re being taught by reputable instructors from leading universities, TAFEs and professional organisations – providing you with the knowledge that you’ve been after for your career, personal interest or because it’s a passion.
Whatever the reason, we know one thing for sure – you’ve got a strong commitment to learning and with Open2Study, you’re learning in a way that you like.
For those that have a head for numbers here’s an extra round up of the results we saw from students in Open2Study's first subjects:
• 23.6% of all students who enrolled got a grade of 60% or above and earned a Certificate of Achievement
• Of the students who actually started their subject, 48.7% passed
• 4.7% of students achieved a grade of 100% (Wow - congrats!)
It’s still early days, and with almost 50 subject planned by the end of 2013 we know it will take a lot of effort to keep us on track. No matter what it’s our goal to continue improving online learning and help students to have the best possible experience.
Our focus for the rest of 2013 is to keep listening to your feedback and improving the Open2Study platform.
Keep an eye out over the coming weeks for lots of new features including new ways to connect and collaborate with other students.
