Online Courses

Dr Joanne Backhouse

Dr Joanne Backhouse

My lectures focus on the material culture of ancient Egypt, examining what the objects and archaeological remains can reveal about the people who made and utilised them. It is a game of detection and the clues are priceless.

All Egyptology lectures are held online via Zoom. This is an easy to use application which is free to download to any device – PC, iPad, Mac, or phone.

For each online lecture series, a handbook will be provided with suggested readings. No prior knowledge is required, just an inquisitive mind. The Zoom link will be sent out the day before the lecture and again on the morning of the session, as a reminder

Wirral 3Ls  

Wirral 3Ls  Leisure, laughter & learning

We know the social contact within 3Ls is so important to our members, as well as the enjoyment and fulfilment of being part of a friendly group. We have been looking at ways in which we can help members through these difficult times until our normal classes resume.

Working with a number of our tutors, we are now able to offer a range of online classes which we are sure you will enjoy. You can access them via computer, tablet, or even a smartphone. They are a great way of keeping in touch and enjoying your favourite activities and subjects.

Wirral 3Ls is coordinating these courses, but they are being provided directly by the tutors themselves, in some cases as an extension of their own businesses with a discount for 3Ls members. You make payment for the course direct to the tutor

The Manchester Continuing Education Network

The Manchester Continuing Education Network (MANCENT), is a loose network of independent lecturers and students with a firm belief that Continuing Education at a high level should be available to all who want it.
It tries to match interested students with highly qualified and experienced Continuing Education and University lecturers in the Arts and Sciences.
Over the last 9 months our online courses have gone from strength to strength and we are looking forward to continuing them into 2021.
Of course we (like everybody else is hoping to soon return to a classroom setting, but most of our Spring 2021 courses will continue online.
