Introduction to ecosystems

Description

This free course from The Open University is designed to help you gain an understanding of the natural world and how the web of life works, with illustrations from around the world.

Course format

Although the course has been designed to be studied over six weeks, the course is open all year for you to join at anytime and study at your own pace.

Throughout each week the materials that you study will pose questions. These questions are designed to get you thinking about the natural world and the structure of ecosystems. There will also be questions that stimulate you to think about how we humans interact with the ecosystems around us. Some questions will be quite specific, but there will be others that are far more open, prompting discussion and consideration of evidence but perhaps not reaching firm conclusions.
