Apr 8, 2020 | Cindy Males, Public Relations and Communications Specialist
Canadore College is looking to help people pass their time while they are physically distancing. It is offering online learning opportunities, free of charge.
“Canadore is offering course modules at no cost as a way of saying thank you to the community for doing its part to fight the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Canadore President George Burton.
One module from each of six general education courses is being offered, through this free programming initiative. They cover many interests, from Astronomy to World Culture through Film to the Science of Everyday Life. Some modules consist of several lessons, while others have only one. The modules are designed specifically for online delivery. No previous experience or prior education is required. Participation would be for interest only, as there will be no grading or evaluation provided.
“Canadore is doing its part to help people cope during this very difficult time by offering these learning opportunities free to the community,” said Burton.
