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.)

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.

The way the light hits the State Ed. building in the evening. It shines just through Alfred E. Smith, the LOB, and the Capitol and catches the corner columns in this orange glow. I don't know why, but I just find it stunning.
