Learning for fun is a leisure activity I currently enjoy and look forward to spending more time whenever I retire again.

Here are some ideas on making this an inexpensive activity:

- NPR (I do to donate to their pledge drives )
- Download online courses to my IPOD from Apple University
- MIT has put some free courses online
- Google books search
- The Osher Institutes which are affliated with local colleges and universities, offer low-cost non-credit courses for people over 50. Below link is an example--courses cost $15

Anyone else have ideas?
