On the cusp of retirement, I found the course information to be both relevant and beneficial.
I am new to the retirement business having gone from full time to part time work with my employer for the past 22 years. I have now retired from that company. I am now undertaking paid work for an organisation for which I was honorary treasurer for the past 10 years. The reason being is that the organisation has grown and now requires an in house presence by an accountant for approximately one day per week. I have found the course beneficial and looking forward to continuing my education with other courses offered by U3A Online. I am also considering my options in regard to unpaid voluntary work.
I am a U3A England member and found the course very interesting and will use it for talks I give occasionally to our psychology class.
Well presented and relevant to my interest.
It brought it all together for me.
I have found the course material very useful and thought provoking.
The course gave me good direction as a general platform for learning about Antarctica and was easy to follow. A great course.
One participant had some experience in a related field and could ‘talk the talk’, interesting but slightly daunting. Currently unable to work, it kept my mind alert and interested and able to better understand related news items.
I wanted to know more about this extraordinary place without having to take exams; it definitely fulfilled my expectations of interest and information. I’ve discovered a love for cold places, at a distance anyway! The modules were well paced and led well into each other with lovely photos.
I found the course to be excellent. It covered so many areas relating to Antarctica of which I had no knowledge at all. Some of the technical data was a bit beyond me but the rest of it was really great.
I was very impressed with the content of this course.
I belong to a country U3A which only has one study group? I enjoyed doing this course as part of a study group. We swapped so much information web sites etc. It also improved our computer skills. We also enjoyed the social experience, finishing up with a white afternoon tea!
This course was most stimulating and encouraged our group to lots of further research. We found members of our local community had worked in Antarctica and were very happy to talk of their experiences. I belong to a country U3A
'Antarctica' has been brilliant! Informative, educational, well presented, challenging. The resource links are providing me with months of reading and accessible information. I have spent many hours side tracking into topics such lives of the first explorers and life today at the various stations in Antarctica. I clip relevant articles from newspapers, for example those on the increasing size of the hole in the ozone layer. My understanding of the frozen continent, its flora and fauna, the threats facing all aspects of the environment has increased a hundredfold.
This course has been wonderfully informative. Most of the links actually worked! I liked the side tracks.
