European eLearning platform for Senior Citizens (55+)

Adapting e-learning techniques for integrating senior citizens in the new digital world.
A simple and easy-to-use eLearning platform recently went online that is specifically designed for senior citizens (55+).

The project SeniorLearning is supported by the European Commission under the Lifelong Learning Grundtvig Programme. It offers free access to practical, structured, and easy-to-follow online courses that enable senior citizens to learn how to use the Internet and benefit from its services.
The aim of the SeniorLearning website is to empower senior citizens to take part in the new digital world by providing them with step-by-step practical assistance in the use of the Internet.
Four courses are currently available online: an introduction to the web and the SeniorLearning platform; a communications course that teaches the basic applications of email, chats, forums, and Skype; an introduction to online newspapers, e-books and digital libraries; and one that explains travel-planning tools (flight booking etc.).
