Registration Process:

For access to this MOOC, a teacher needs to register their interest by:

  1. send an email (ideally from your school email account) requesting access to
  2. use the subject line "GCSE MOOC"
  3. include something that proves you are a member of staff at the school, eg. a link your school website or a Computing At School profile page etc.

Please note: Once a request has been received you should expect to receive a response within two working days. Some teachers have reported that the email they received in response has gone into their SPAM folder. You'll then be able to access the course and if you choose, you can then register your students/pupils quickly and easily by sending a .CSV file. More information & guidance for teachers appears on the course page.

Access to the MOOC is completely free 'forever' for the first 13 topics for all teachers and students, this includes about one term's worth of free content, resources, plans, homework and assessment tools. This extended free trial is to enable teachers and their students to evaluate the MOOC with no further obligation or commitment to purchase.

If you later decide you would like access to the remaining topics 14 - 40, there is a £100+vat annual subscription fee per school. Schools who wish to access the additional topics will need to submit an official order form. The subscription fee is waived for schools who are ISP customers of Exa Networks.
