Life Long Learning Online

Don't feel like driving to the video store? Want to increase your knowledge of the world around you? Check out Annenberg Media's on-demand instructional videos "for college and high school classrooms and adult learners." While the site is geared at educators, topics of interest to adult/life-long learners include foreign language, the arts, mathematics, science and history. The site requires free registration and you'll definitely need a broadband connection to view the content.

If you prefer the "offline" approach, the library also has some terrific audio-visual materials, specifically the Great Courses series on compact disc, DVD and VHS formats. Reserve materials from your home computer and pick them up at your local library.
