E-learning platforms allow people to attend a course virtually (also known as 'on-line'), with no distance or time limitations. This is a major advantage, since it implies that more people can access new educational opportunities.

This type of education must be designed with great care, creating materials that will allow on-line submission, as well as activities where students can participate synchronously (that is, on-demand). Furthermore, this education method lacks the ways of communication we are used to (non-verbal communication, for instance), making it harder to provide those competencies that require the students' physical presence. The case of senior students additionally demands the use of adequate teaching methods that will take into account motivation, experience and abilities.

DEATH OF Mª ADORACIÓN HOLGADO SÁNCHEZ

Dear members of AEPUM,

Today is a very sad day for the National Association of University Programmes for Older Adults, and above all for those persons in the education area who coexisted and knew ADORACIÓN HOLGADO SÁNCHEZ, our dear and loved Dory.

Yesterday she left us in a sudden and unexpected manner. Many of the members of AEPUM could share with her the sessions of the last Seminar celebrated on the 29th of September in Salamanca. During those times her huge illusion and animosity could not presage the piece of news we are transmitting.

Dory, was not only one of the pioneers in the realization of the University Programmes for Older Adults in Spain and of the constitution of the National Committee (2000) and the National Association of University Programmes for Older Adults (2004), but also was in charge of AEPUM´s Secretary from its beginning until the year 2010.

Her work, contributions and good judgement, have been very important in AEPUM, but above all her human quality, friendship and teaching have been indispensable to help many of us who have been joining the task of the University Education for Older Adults and AEPUM.

From AEPUM and with these lines, we wish to pay tribute with our most sincere gratefulness and recognition to Dory. Good person, and great person.

We wish with all our hearts may she rest in peace.
