ElderSource Offering Free Interactive Online Classes
JACKSONVILLE, FL – ElderSource has announced a pilot program with GetSetUp, a new online learning platform, to offer a collection of online classes specifically for older adults seeking educational and entertaining activities. The classes, available at no cost through the end of June, are accessible on the GetSetUp website (www.getsetup.io/partner/eldersource) using a tablet, personal computer or smart phone and with the coupon code, “ELDERSOURCE.”
The GetSetUp platform is unique as the classes are presented in real-time, not a prerecorded lecture, and encourage interaction among participants and the instructor. GetSetUp Guides, who are older adults and retired educators, help participants “learn by doing” and encourage discussion and questions during the class.
Presentation topics, which change daily and often repeated, are numerous and include how to use Zoom, smart phone, social media platforms, and other technology; how to order groceries and prescriptions online; introduction to wine appreciation; virtual tours of museums and cities; health and wellness sessions; and travel and gardening guides, just to name a few.
“For older adults striving to stay safe and healthy during the pandemic, GetSetUp is a fantastic way to be uplifted, entertained, educated and connected to fascinating topics,” said Linda Levin, ElderSource CEO.
