Free Instructor–Led Online Courses with Learn4Life

by Roberta - 0 Comment(s)

One of the Library's most popular and heavily used online products continues to offer Calgarians high quality courses that are never cancelled, never fill up, and support lifelong learning and personal growth on over 300 topics. All our cardholders have access to Learn4Life, instructor led online courses available from your home or office — at whatever times are most convenient for you.

175 expert instructors develop, lead, and interact with students in each course, which run for six weeks, with a two-week grace period at the end. Courses are project oriented and include lessons, quizzes, hands-on assignments, discussion boards, supplementary links, and an optional final exam.

I recently chatted with Jim, a customer who took the Publish and Sell Your E-books course. "I thought the program was great, partly because the instructor had self published several titles, and had practical information on what the bigger vendors, such Amazon, look for. She also discussed the nuts and bolts of getting paid. It felt personal."

Courses are easily accessed through the Library's E-Library link from our homepage, under the heading of Job Search, Careers & Courses, or by clicking on the link on the left hand side under Recommended Resources. On the first page, you will find a step by step guide, along with a helpful FAQ to answer some of the most common questions.
