Robert Schuwer's curator insight, June 6, 2013 2:07 AM

The license is the same as that used by Udacity, being the most restrictive CC-license. But hey, it's better than completely closed ;-). In the terms of use of Futurelearn, a student has to register and comply to a code of conduct similar to that used by Coursera (e.g. no cheating). It seems EdX will be the most open of the Big Three, although currently most of the courses are not (yet?) published under a CC-license.
