Where to take continuing education classes?

chalk on chalk board ledgeChris asks via Twitter:

"Do you [know] where would I find continuing education programs in Albany County?"

The first place that jumped to mind: the Albany school district, which offers a slate of continuing ed classes. Here's the current schedule of classes.

But we're certain there are other options out there. Have a suggestion for Chris? Please share!

The Albany High School continuing ed. program is somewhat limited. The suburban school districts in Albany County have a wider range of classes -- Bethlehem, Voorheesville, Guilderland, South Colonie -- all have great offerings. (Note: It's actually too late to sign up for the fall classes. Check their websites in January for the spring offerings.)





For art there is the Albany Art Room in its new location at 350 New Scotland Ave.


The Honest Weight Food Co-op has free classes on food, health, sustainable living, fitness that change monthly.


Old Songs offers music classes in Voorheesville.

There are also occasional classes at the local libraries and museums that mostly likely you'd find on their websites.

Lots of continuing ed. opportunities in Albany County depending on your interests.

I forgot to add that if you want to drive outside Albany County, both Hudson Valley Community College and Schenectady Community College have non-credit continuing educations courses.

I have just started to take MOOCs (Massive Open Online Courses), and Coursera.org is a great resource for learning new skills online.

MIT offers over 2,000 classes online. For free.

I went to polish school, I grew up eating polish food, I even help cook polish food at the biannual polish dinner/ dances and even dressed up like a polish soldier for parades, so l guess I'm polish AND there is nothing better than going to Muza's for the food I grew up that is just as good as moms.
