Four more universities have announced plans to offer massive open online courses via the UK-based Futurelearn platform, taking the total number of higher education institutions involved to 21, the Times Higher Education reports.

Loughborough University and the universities of Sheffield, Glasgow and Strathclyde are the latest to partner with the Open University-owned company, which is due to start offering courses from affiliated universities, free of charge, later this year.

In addition, the British Museum has signed up to work with Futurelearn, following the lead of the British Library, which partnered with the MOOC providerĀ in February, and the British Council.
