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

In February 2015, OpenLearning raised $1.7 million in funding led by angel investor Clive Mayhew. ASX-listed ICS Global, Robin and Susan Yandle, and Hideaki Fukutake, the director of Japanese education company Benesse Holdings.[4]

In June 2015, the Australian Federal Government announced it would be getting its first MOOC delivered by Open Learning. [5]
