Educational activities undertaken by seniors are of particular interest to instructors and researchers in the field of lifelong education. The purpose of the paper is to show how many seniors participate in various educational programs and undertake formal and informal learning. The paper will also address more specific questions like why seniors want to learn, what motivates them to continue learning, what importance they actually attach to learning. Teachers, instructors and those concerned with the learning needs of older people should understand how older students differ from younger ones, both in their motivation to learn and in their cognitive abilities. The need to develop educational programs and teaching techniques designed specifically for older adults is extremely urgent, as education and learning play an important role in successful aging.
