Meanwhile, Open Course Ware came on the scene while I was approaching 65.
I "signed up" for a history class on American Consumer Culture and a writing class called Food for Thought. Actually there's no signing up and the professor has no idea you're there. It would be wonderful for the Invisible Man; he could remain invisible to be sure.
As much time as I spend rambling the net, I may as well add some methods to my madness, along with a bit of structure. School will be out by the time I'm ready to really hang out in the garden again. I can skip finals if necessary and give myself an E.
OCW is a large-scale, Web-based publication of MIT course materials, and is not a degree-granting or credit-bearing initiative.
