AARP announced the launch of its AARP TEK Academy, a free, easy-to-use online classroom designed to help 50-plus Americans get the most out of technology to connect with family and friends, explore employment opportunities, access health information, enjoy entertainment and more. Located at www.aarptek.org, the site can be accessed from a variety of devices, including smartphones, tablets, laptops or desktops and offers dozens of tutorials on a range of helpful topics, from social media to staying safe online.

AARP TEK (which stands for Technology Education and Knowledge) launched last year offering hands-on workshops in select cities to empower the 50-plus audience to use technology to live their best lives. The TEK Academy is the latest offering as part of this program.

AARP TEK Academy is for anyone who wants to get the most out of their mobile devices, stay safe online and pursue online adult learning for professional development, healthy living, online money management, entertainment and much more.  The online AARP TEK Academy is a solution to reach even more Americans and help them to use technology to positively impact their lives and to realize the ‘real possibilities’ that AARP represents, whether it’s staying in touch with family via social media, using technology to expand their business, and learning new skills for job searches.

While aimed at helping the 50-plus demographic, AARP TEK is for anyone who wants to get the most out of their smartphone, tablet or other technology. With the addition of the online AARP TEK Academy, people can now leverage AARP TEK resources in a variety of ways including online seminars, and interactive online courses. New features available at AARP TEK Academy include a webinar series on topics such as Facebook security, digital photography and building your personal brand online.

Produced in collaboration with Kaplan, AARP TEK also provides people with access to LearningAdvisor.com, a robust site for adult learning that features a searchable database of more than 30,000 online courses from 20 different providers, providing a range of courses for everyone from the tech savvy to new users.
