Tri-C Encore 55+ Learning Opens Registration for New Set of Online Courses
Fall session begins Aug. 4 with a variety of programs for adults aged 55 and older
Encore 55+ Learning at Cuyahoga Community College (Tri-C®) is opening a new session of online courses as the College works to maintain community programs while adapting to challenges created by the COVID-19 outbreak.
Encore On-the-Go features virtual sessions twice a week to enrich the minds and lives of those aged 55 and older. Fall session begins Aug. 4, with a different set of four-week courses each month through November.
The 50-minute classes meet once a week on either Tuesdays or Fridays, with start times offered at 9 a.m., 11 a.m. and 1 p.m. Courses cover a wide variety of subjects, including finance, fitness, history, literature, music, philosophy, science and more.
Instructors will teach the classes via Webex, an easy-to-use online meeting platform. Assistance is available for those unfamiliar with Webex, and the Encore team is offering test sessions on using the app.
Enrollment cost for Encore On-the-Go is $18 per four-week course.
In addition, Tri-C’s Neighborhood Scholars 55+ adult education program returns this fall in a primarily virtual format. The schedule includes online classes from the Cleveland Museum of Art and Cleveland History Center, as well as the popular “Coffee With a Curator” sessions.
In-person tours of four historic Cleveland churches are planned in September and October.
Most Neighborhood Scholars classes are one-day opportunities, with fees ranging from $10 to $20. The six-week Cleveland Museum of Art series costs $79.
Visit tri-c.edu/encore for full lists of Encore On-the-Go and Neighborhood Scholars courses with dates and times. Potential students can also call 216-987-2274 for information. Enrollment for both programs has opened.
