Since September 2014 Senior Learners, Inc., a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization run by volunteers, has provided educational opportunities to seniors 50 years old or more. Before the current pandemic, we offered our noncredit, college-level courses in a classroom at the Ocala Campus of the College of Central Florida. Until the pandemic is tamed, we have shifted to online courses covering a broad range of academic interests, including Health, Science & Technology, The Arts, History, and Languages. Our outstanding instructors come from a wide range of backgrounds and include current and retired artists, musicians, teachers, professors, doctors, engineers, and scientists. Learn about our instructors.
All Senior Learners Summer Term courses are online via Zoom. To participate in online classes, you must register – click on the name of the class in the list below to get a description and sign up. Details for connecting to the online class will be in your registration confirmation email after your payment has been received. So be sure to register and pay early. If you have any questions, or do not get the link to join your Zoom class, send an email to email@example.com or call (352) 239–8780. If you prefer to pay by check, send your check, payable to Senior Learners, to Senior Learners, Inc., 3001 SW College Rd, PMB No. 210, Ocala FL 34474-4415.
On August 16, 2021 CF is resuming in-person courses. Some Senior Learners Fall Term courses will be in our new classroom (Room 107 in Building 20). Based on current recommendations by the CDC, Senior Learners strongly recommends that all students (vaccinated or not) wear masks while in the classroom.
If you did not register for a course and the instructor is not in the classroom by the scheduled class time, then the class is online via Zoom.
For further information call the Senior Learners help number: 352-239-8780.
Instructors come to the classroom only when they consider there are sufficient in-person registrations the night before the first class. If there are not sufficient in-person registrations, these registrations are converted to online and the affected students are notified.
