An invitation to learn
Obtaining a large sum of money or winning a substantial Hoosier Lottery prize can be an overwhelming experience. People facing sudden and unexpected wealth have myriad decisions to make and sometimes find themselves barraged with offers to help.
The Hoosier Lottery and Ivy Tech Community College have partnered to create a free Massive Open Online Course (MOOC) aimed at providing financial literacy instruction. This course is available to all Hoosiers as a resource to assist with individual finances.
Participants are offered the opportunity to learn various aspects of financial literacy and money management through four modules:
- Keeping Track of Your Money
- Budgeting Your Money
- Financial Planning
- Managing Your Money
- Managing Your Consumer Credit Use
- The Importance of Paying Off Your Debt
- Buying a Car
- Buying a Home
- Investing to Increase Wealth
- Protecting Your Assets with Insurance
- Planning for Your Retirement
Each session is an interactive experience for participants and uses videos and activities that are designed to be motivational and entertaining. Courses are self-paced and can be completed on individual schedules. Recipients will receive a certificate upon completion.
