Open Univeristy - Openlearn content on dripread

I came across an interesting project that had the same idea as dripread at
http://learningfeed.org/

Unfortunately it barley seems to have gotten off the ground, but it did give me the idea of making Open University lectures available on dripread.

In fact I think the dripread delivery mechanism of a bite size chunk off information in daily intervals is a good way to learn about a topic without having to make a concious effort to site down and study.

If it makes the difference between a student actually reading the material and them just meaning to read the material but not getting round to it, then dripreading would seems worthwhile.

Anyway, here's a first version of a short course I have adapted on Evolution via dripread.
