Video Courses

Throughout the 2014 Scottish Referendum, the University of Edinburgh hosted a Massive Open Online Course ‘MOOC’, on the issues surrounding the referendum. This was followed in 2016 by a joint series with Cardiff University that focused on the 2016 elections to the Scottish Parliament and the National Assembly for Wales.

The courses consisted of a series of short videos, all of which are available below.
