The unprecedented cancellation of the American Numismatic Association Summer Seminar is not going to prevent learning opportunities. The ANA will be offering free virtual courses through the new ANA eLearning Academy.

Eleven courses that would have been part of the June 29 to July 10 Summer Seminar are now being prepared for offering in a condensed one- or two-hour format. The classes are not a replacement for future Summer Seminars, but will provide a sampling of the topics covered and the benefits of the event.

The online courses, scheduled between June 29 and July 10, will be open to members and nonmembers free of charge, but they will require preregistration. Beginning times cited here are in Mountain Daylight Time.
