Online Learning Can Support Social Engagement

Online Learning Can Support Social Engagement

  • Many older adults go back to school, while others turn to online courses.
  • Online courses can offer flexible, interactive and collaborative learning opportunities, that allow you to take courses from instructors all over the world.
  • Engaging with others in online courses appears to foster a sense of belonging to a group (albeit virtual), improve self-esteem, and help address isolation among older adults.

    Do you have technology questions? We can help! Cyber-Seniors Technology Mentors are young people who have been trained to teach technology to older adults and are standing by to help with your smart phone, iPad or computer.
