Lifelong learning is an excellent habit. Learning is positive for your health. Those who dedicate some slice of their life to learning are generally happier and more engaging.
There are many great paths for lifelong learning. You already use SHIFT workshops and events. But also, consider books, reading, podcasts, YouTube videos, and the topic of this workshop, online learning sites.
This workshop will present and review popular online learning platforms that can help lifelong learners support their habits. There are dozens of online sites that provide online courses, many of which are free or affordable. The courses available from these popular sites range from languages to technical topics, from history to creative endeavors. We will demonstrate the sites as we search and sign up for courses in three sample areas: learning a foreign language, learning a technical topic like Microsoft Excel, and exploring a creative endeavor like photography.
After the session, you will have access to resources found on the SeniorTechClub.com website. There you will find lessons specifically developed for older adults. Use the online site to review class topics and explore lessons on other topics.
