Take a Virtual Tour

Hi, I’m Rob Thomas, Ph.D. and it has been a dream of mine to offer my courses to everyday learners who are not enrolled in a degree program. Many of my friends have never had access to higher education. Others are post-graduates with busy lives. I am always meeting people in my everyday life who want to take my courses, but have no access. I had no way to serve them, until now. I’ve built myLearn with a lot of care and thought about teaching working adults from all walks of life. I am excited to be able to share some of the unique courses I have developed and taught over the past 20-years. Welcome to a new way of learning.
