Celebrating 20 Years!

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute at Bradley University (OLLI) is a group of more than 1,000 individuals, age 50 and over, who learn together through three distinct programs: OLLI Classes, OLLI Learning Trips, and OLLI Study Groups.

Here, members can discuss what they learned, what they enjoyed, and offer suggestions to enhance future program offerings.

Take a look at the photos we're taking, and the discussions we're having as OLLI members.

Whether we're in class, in town, or out of town ... we're on the go, having fun, and constantly learning.

We look forward to reading your comments!

iPad Basics Study Group -- March, 2013

One of the ways to enhance lifelong learning is by using an iPad to discover and capture new knowledge.

Ten OLLI members recently completed a four-session iPad Basics Study Group where they discovered ways to use their iPads to enhance their individual lifelong learning experiences.

Facilitator Greg Peine helped the group develop skills in using some of the basic applications (apps) such as Notes, Pictures, and Safari to capture and organize information.

According to Greg, a broad concern of the group was how to keep their iPads healthy. To address this concern, several "how to" topics were discussed, including how to clean the touch screen, upgrade iOS, backup to the iCloud or home computer, synchronize with iTunes, and mirror e-mail.

Learning with the iPad was another topic of interst to the group. Several of the free resources were demonstrated, such as Khan Academy and iTunes U.

An iPad Intermediate Study Group will be offered soon, during which participants will continue to look at ways to optimize their lifelong learning experiences with an iPad.

OLLI thanks Greg Peine for facilitating this group and for providing the pictures and text for this post!
