Adults who join Brooklyn Lifelong Learning (BLL), located at Brooklyn College get to enjoy classes with no tests, homework or grades. Dedicated volunteer instructors teach on a wide range of topics.
Lately BLL has added the newest trend in learning: Massively Open Online Courseware. Video courses from throughout academia are shown to classes, followed by a live discussion among the attendees.
BLL participants have been able to experience the best, such as a music course from Yale, and a film course from MIT.
This summer, students enjoyed a Harvard course, The Hebrew Scriptures in Judaism and Christianity. Four lectures were viewed by the class. The discussions that followed were lively, but respectful among the participants, who came from a variety of religious traditions. The course will continue this fall.
