MOOCs stands for Massive Open Online Courses. There are literally thousands of such courses on every conceivable topic, offered online and free of charge. Always hungry for a bit more knowledge, we started the online learning group in 2016.
Sometimes we choose a course that we study together (each in their own home, in their own time, and at their own pace) but usually we all choose different topics. We have studied a wide variety of courses: from Cultural Studies to Nutrition, Government, Italian, Mindfulness and Empire, to name but a few.
One course that most of us chose – and enjoyed – was on Successful Ageing. There was a wealth of detailed information, hints, tips, strategies, encouragement, new ideas and inspiration to be had and all of us took away something different to try out, implement, change, or just enrich our lives.
Once a month we meet to talk about what we learned, exchange tips and generally have a good time over a cuppa along with good discussions. Sharing our findings with the group benefits everybody, and we get to hear and understand many things which we might never have chosen to research of our own accord. Fabulous!
We are a small but fun group and would very much welcome anyone curious and open-minded to join us.
