Do You Still Want to Learn?

Technology is wonderful. With today’s technology, you never have to stop learning. And the best part is you is you can learn from some universities around the world at no cost. No stress learning.

Think of it as auditing classes. You take the classes you are interested in, in the comfort of your own home. Now the way I am doing it is with iTunes University. This is another good reason to be using Apple technology.

When iTunes U came out, I briefly looked at it. However, now I have some things I would like to learn more about and I remembered seeing it.

You can receive the lectures on an iPad, iPod or iPhone, but If it is a video lecture, I am watching it on a large screen TV via Apple TV. That makes it almost like being in the class. At my age, I would be embarrassed to actually go back to college, but this way is fun.

I personally don’t think we ever get too old to learn. However, for me, I would like the learning to be structured and what better way than to use actual courses from a university.

If you want to try your hand on writing, there is a course on writing. I took some time today and listened to it since I sometimes think about writing more than a blog. If you are interested in astronomy, then there are classes on it too.

There are so many things I still have an interest in learning and what a wonderful medium I am rediscovering.

  1. This is very interesting and I’m going to delve into it further. Not having a television I’m always looking for interesting ways to waste time besides listening to audio books and reading on my iPad.

    I’m curious, though, why you would feel embarrassed to go back to college at your age? What difference does age have to do with it?

  2. I’ve spent the last couple of hours wandering around in the iTunes University. Very interesting. Now I’m listening to the Prairie Home Companion on the iTunes radio. That’s something I only found out about a couple of months ago. Now in the mornings with my coffee I log into iTunes and listen to “Morning Edition” and other great PBS feeds. There are also a ton of music genres you can log in to when you get tired of listening to tipica music on CHT.
