Welcoming letter from Roland Tanner, President of New Frontiers

Dear New Frontier Friends,

In response to the current Pandemic, New Frontiers for Lifelong Learning (NFLL), in coordination with MCC requirements, will not have any on-site classes at either Dobson or Red Mountain Campuses for Fall of 2020. Your volunteer NFLL curriculum team in conjunction with some hustle from other volunteers within NFLL have put together over 50 online Video Classes hosted in Zoom or WebEx.

MCC has been kind enough to allow us use of their enterprise WebEx Meeting license for most of the presenters of the classes. We will have training for both Video Applications for folks taking the courses and for hosts (facilitators) or presenters. The training schedule for Zoom and WebEx will be forthcoming. We understand that this is a huge leap for many of you and we will make every effort to make it work so all of you can continue on your lifelong learning path.

All current NFLL members have an MEID login (which typically is the first three letters of you first name followed by numbers) and access to an MCC Gmail free account at This allows ALL of you access to Office 365 which is currently sold at $99.00 per year.

All of you also have access to student discounts on educational products and the Google Suite of software under your MCC account. This includes Google Meet (comparable to ZOOM) which is now free under your MCC student status. To the general public this Google Meet will no longer be free after September 30, 2020.

I am encouraging all of you to support NFLL in these times of uncertainty and join NFLL for this fall and next spring session. NFLL will continue to abide with MCC guidelines regarding face to face classes. I am sure we will have more exciting online classes as we become more accustomed to them.

Kind regards to all of you,
Roland Tanner
President NFLL
