Can't start a new course


This may be a stupid question but i have enrolled for a course and wanted to get cracking on it but every time i try to join one of the core courses i get the following error 


Error joining course

The email address you are using has not been invited to this course, please check that you are using the correct email address.


I have verified my email and do all the required steps but still no joy.Another issue i have is that most of the core courses say that they are closed.Why is this ??

  • Hi  John O'Halloran ! Sounds like the course you're trying to join is invite-only course, meaning you need to have an invitation in order to be able to join. If you have received one, it's important you use the same e-address to register at OpenLearning as the e-mail you received the invitation too. 

    Hope that helps!

    • John O'Halloran Hi John! At the bottom of the page for the course, there should be a list of admins and teachers. You can click on their profiles and send them a message asking for an invite.
