Award for podcast’s ‘humour and originality’

The OU’s The History of English in Ten Minutes has won the Education In House Production award at the Learning on Screen Awards.

Judges at the award last week praised its graphics, humour and originality.

The History of English in Ten Minutes is a light-hearted romp through 1600 years of history, uncovering sources of English words and phrases from Shakespeare and the King James Bible to the internet.

It is available via the OU’s iTunes and YouTube channels and has clocked up almost 2 million views across both channels.

Academic Consultant on the project was Philip Seargeant, Lecturer in Applied Linguistics in FELS at the Open University.
