Children and Violence - an OpenLearn Course module

The Open University in the U.K., with the support of the Hewlett Foundation, has been actively building a feature-rich learning platform called OpenLearn. Building on well-established tools like Moodle (a learning management system) and Compendium (a mind-mapping tool), the OpenLearn course site has become a model for creative online learning spaces. And the good news is that all the educational materials on OpenLearn are open access and can be easily exported for use in other ways.

Readers of this blog will probably appreciate a nicely developed course called Children and Violence: an introductory and interdisciplinary approach. The unit explores children’s exposure to violence in the home, between peers, and within armed conflicts. Look for the “Alternative Formats” menu on the right side for ways to move the content to another location or platform.
