People 50 and over can register for fall online classes at the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute (OLLI) at Cal State San Bernardino’s Palm Desert Campus.

The Osher Lifelong Learning Institute is a program designed for adults 50 and older who want to experience learning for the fun of it. OLLI offers non-credit, university-level courses, but without the grades, tests or homework.

Membership is open to adults who enjoy learning, regardless of their educational background. Annual membership is $75; then members choose as many courses as they like and pay for those courses on an individual basis. Six-week courses are $50 each; three-week courses are $30.

Course topics typically include the arts, history, literature, economics, natural sciences, philosophy and more.

Participants can try a week of classes from Sept. 21-25 for $10 each with no membership required. They can then choose to become an OLLI member and select additional courses during the regular fall term that starts on Oct. 5.

“Even though we can’t meet in person on campus right now, we still have a very robust selection of courses and activities being offered online this fall,” said Sue Anderson, director of the Osher Lifelong Learning Institute.
