Online & Distance Learning

The Faculty of Arts & Humanities have, in partnership with King’s Online, run a series of popular MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses) on the FutureLearn platform.

Interactive, professionally designed and completely free to use, these MOOCs open up the expertise of A&H academics to the widest possible online audience. 

Featured course: Inside Opera - Why Does It Matter?

In this MOOC, users can discover the hidden world of opera, find out how it works and debate whether it is still relevant today. We ran the course three times between Autumn 2017 and Summer 2018, and welcomed c.15k joiners.

Here King's reintroduced thousands of online learners to the works of Shakespeare, both in print and through performances from around the world, from early modern times to the present day. We ran the course three time between Autumn 2016 and Summer 2018, and welcomed over 16,500 joiners.
