Robert Burns MOOC FlyerStudy Burns on Exciting New Online Course
On January 25 2016, the Centre for Robert Burns Studies at the University of Glasgow, in partnership with Futurelearn, will be launching the first Massively Open Online Course (MOOC) on Robert Burns.
This course will introduce learners to the life and works of the National Bard and over the course of three weeks, learners will explore three core questions: Who was Robert Burns? What made Robert Burns a poetic genius? What made Burns a worldwide icon?
Registration for the course ‘Robert Burns: Poems, Songs, and Legacy’ is free and open to all. No previous experience or qualifications are required for this course - just an interest in Robert Burns, or Scottish history and culture, or poetry and song in general.
Further details on the launch event and on the course will be available at the Centre for Robert Burns Studies and also in the Federation’s January Newsletter.

Registration for the course is now open at
