Learn Something New Every Day

Learning new things is a passion of mine. I took my first college classes the same year my oldest son started college. My kids said I was too old but I know you are NEVER too old to learn. So when I ran across this site I signed up right away for my first course.

Enroll at About U for More Online Learning
About U is a collection of free online courses on About.com. Each online course is sent to you via email on a daily or weekly basis and will help you learn new skills, solve common problems, find shortcuts and quick tricks to simplify your busy life, or just learn more about your world.

Why not pick a few subjects and ask your residents if they are interested in classes on any of the subjects? Perhaps you can have a new subject each month and pass out learning certificates at the end of each course.
