    It would be wonderful to join a course about medieval calligraphy. I think many would be motivated to learn it.

    It would be grat if you foster a course about project management, it could be a program with pdu’s (supported by the Project management Institute)

    I liked very much the course “” Superpowers of the ancient world” that unfortunately didn’t finished on time. I’d like to learn this course again or some another course about ancient civilizations. As whole, I think that “future Learn” is a wonderful opportunity for improvement for every one who strives to improve his English and simultaneously to gain new knowledge.

    The link to the play course doesn’t go to the play course, it goes to the mindfulness course.

    Tried FutureLearn couple times and must sadly admit it doesn’t stand the comparison with other MOOC providers. Courses are short and very superficial…. quizzes and exams nowhere challenging. I might not be the ideal marketing target, and I am not paying for certificates anyway, but still wonder who is going to pay for these courses and why.
