Trust me, its not. I've taken quite a few courses at the site. It was here at TRF that I first heard of the course being offered to run side by side with the reburial of Richard III. Very interesting course in the life and times of the era and its people and the War of the Roses. This is the course description for Exploring English (I took it to mean things that are English and not learning the language): Magna Carta (a specific time and event in English history) and it is being offered by the British Council.
"This free online course will start by looking at the events that led to the signing of the Magna Carta in 1215, before examining the role the Magna Carta has played in shaping history – from American independence to liberation movements around the world.
Finally, we will look at the relevance of the Magna Carta to the 21st century."
Just putting the information out there for all that might be interested.
Although I do realize that this course is aimed towards those that are perhaps using English as a secondary language, I don't think it would detract at all from the information to be gleaned from the course.
BTW: The course on Richard III was offered by the University of Leicester. There is also a course being offered in the The Holocaust: Part 1 & 2 which are being offered through the University of Tel Aviv and various other courses in various different areas of study.
