So many people have taken to the internet, to watch educational videos, watch movies, watch a show via Zoom or streaming video, watch a lecture or take online classes, especially with Senior Planet.
I have explored various aspects of art with Fricks Cocktails with a curatorial series, and I am a member of a Zoom group group. I turn to the internet to solve technical or other problems. I have learned to test my speakers and speaker cable, how to use a program to adapt vinyl music to an Mp3 and solve minor plumbing problems. Since the pandemic, I have become quite practical.
But what about you? What have you learned online since the pandemic began that you did not know before? Is there a class or series that really helped you, gave you a skill you did not have before or one that you would not miss?
