“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don't find myself saying, "Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner." I don't try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.” (Carl Rogers)

OpenLearn

The OpenLearn website gives free access to course materials from The Open University. The LearningSpace is open to learners anywhere in the world. Particularly useful in the Arts are the Arts and History and Modern Languages categories, which offer a veritable cornucopia of open-to-all courses. However it's also worth having a quick search, as I found Using Film Music in the Classroom in the Education category, and this course looks at approaches to using film music in the classroom, including: a focus on pupil experience; a focus on the structure of composition; a focus on the relationship between music and image. Do have a look round - there's some wonderful things here, and you can also subscribe to rss feeds for updates of content.
