Spring 2021: ElderCollege and Covid-19

Because the ElderCollege community is a cohort especially vulnerable to the Covid-19 virus, we continue with the online format of course delivery for our Spring 2021 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 take place using the popular Zoom platform, which is free and easy to use. The steps to use Zoom are explained on our webpage Instructions for using Zoom

In these Instructions you also find a summary of steps that ElderCollege is taking to keep all of us safe and ensure a positive experience.

After you sign up for a particular Course you will be contacted by the Course Facilitator with information about the Course and when you will receive the link for joining the Zoom Session of the selected Course. That is the best time to get in touch with the Course Facilitator to get help with managing Zoom if you are not yet comfortable with all this technology.

  • We are offering 15 courses online in Spring 2021.
  • Courses have started in January.
  • Online registration opened at 12 noon on December 11, 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.
