OpenLearning is a for-profit educational technology company offering a social online learning platform that can deliver massive open online courses (MOOCs). OpenLearning was founded in Australia by computer science professor Richard Buckland and software engineer Adam Brimo from the University of New South Wales.[1]

OpenLearning has worked with the University of New South Wales and Taylor's University to deliver the first MOOCs in Australia and Malaysia respectively.[2]

In December 2013, OpenLearning launched a cloud based software product for companies to create private educational portals on its platform.[3]
