U3A Online: A Virtual University of the Third Age for Isolated Older People.
Swindell, Rick
International Journal of Lifelong Education, v21 n5 p414-29 Sep-Oct 2002
Data from 29 older adults in University of the Third Age Online in 1999 and 34 in 2001 indicated that women outnumbered men; more than 70% were from large urban areas; and 70% had professional, business, and managerial backgrounds. Many are unable to participate in mainstream adult education and derive purpose and enjoyment from virtual communities. (Contains 21 references.) (SK)
