I know people who enjoy Elder Hostel. Lots of courses in exotic places with low fees. This combines travel and education.

If you like history don't forget your local library.

And on Google, not just books but used books are very attractive. Many can be purchased for little more than shipping costs, often $3.99.

For readers, BookShare is a great organization to know about.

This a voluneer organization for the blind and seeing impaired. Clients can download books from BookShare and them have their computers read them the book or display it on a Braille reader device. Volunteers scan the books in and then proofread them to correct scanning errors. In the proofing process you get a copy of the book for your computer and can read it at your leisure.
