REDDING, Calif. - Simpson University for Seniors is offering two courses in November for adults of any age.

The non-credit, no-homework classes, which begin Nov. 2, are taught on Simpson’s campus by university professors and professionals in their field of expertise. Classes meet from 10:20 to 11:20 a.m. and 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. on Mondays, Wednesdays and Fridays.

The following courses are being offered:

10:20-11:20 – Outsmart Your iPhone: Your phone is not the boss of you. If your new smart phone has left you feeling not so smart, then this course is for you. The focus is exclusively on the iOS (iPhone) platform, so an iPhone or an iPad is required to get hands-on practice in class. Presenter: Ryan Belong.

11:30-12:30 – “God Wills It” – The Story of the Crusades. In 1095, Pope Urban II issued a call for Christian knights to redeem the Holy Land from the infidel Turks. This course addresses the tragic story of the eight official crusades of the Crusader Era (1095 and 1291). Presenter: Don Claspill

Two courses are offered each month through April. The cost is $95 per person, per course, or $145 for couples registering for the same course. Register online with a credit card at
