Lifelong Learning with WhatsApp :

Life-long Learning :

For the past several years, I have explored the use of Whatsapp as learning platform for a range of topics that maybe described under the umbrella term ‘life-long learning’. To encourage more people to explore this method, my courses are short, that can be done over a weekend or a week. Somewhat longer courses are for a month ( 4 weeks), but nothing longer than that.

Pursuing these courses will help you move from your current comfort zone, through fear zone and learning zone to growth zone.

You can do all the listed courses over six months at a comfortable pace or three months in a more intense mode or pursue a more personalised path to suit one’s special interests and specific circumstances.
