THE BBC is joining up with four universities, including Glasgow University, to create a series of online courses about the First World War.

Each of the new MOOCs - massive open online courses - will look at a different aspect of the war.

They will include academic material from the universities and video, audio recordings and images with historical value from the BBC's archives, the corporation said.
