Fall 2020: ElderCollege and Covid-19

Because the ElderCollege community is a cohort especially vulnerable to the Covid-19 virus, we have opted to change to an online format of course delivery for our Fall 2020 classes. We recognise that the important social interaction may be somewhat diminished and we will be planning the classes to minimise this loss.

All classes will take place using the popular Zoom platform, which is free and easy to use. The steps to use it will be fully explained by our internet tech wizards when you enrol in an online ElderCollege course . Zoom training sessions will be available at no cost. Watch for upcoming announcement.

  • We are offering 11 courses online in Fall 2020.
  • Courses start in September.
  • Online registration has opened at 12 noon on August 20, 2020.
  • You can see the preview of our courses being offered online.

The Sunshine Coast ElderCollege will continue to offer and expand on the same top quality courses and highly qualified instructors that our students have been accustomed to. Anyone over 55 who wants to keep on learning can take courses at the Sunshine Coast ElderCollege.
