Welcome to Your Gale Learn4Life Trial Site

This trial site allows you to browse through the basic catalog of Gale courses.  Please enjoy exploring the catalog of highly interactive courses, and be sure to check out the instructors' biographies.

Note: This trial does not support full enrollment in courses.  To gain insight into the course experience, please access the lesson one demos available for each course.

To Demo a Lesson:
After locating a course of interest through the catalog browse or search features, click the title of the course.

You will be taken to a detailed description of the course, as well as links to the instructor's bio, student comments, etc.

To access a demo of the first lesson of the course, click "Vew Demo" under the Enroll Now link. 

How it works: 
Library users access their library's Learn4Life site to browse or search for courses.  Once a user locates a course in which he/she would like to enroll, he/she clicks the "Enroll Now" button.  The user then selects the session in which he/she would like to enroll.  Next, the user creates an account or logs in to an existing an account.  The user completes the enrollment process by entering his/her library barcode.

Once a user enrolls using his/her library card number, each course is taken entirely over the Internet whenever they want to access the course-whether from work, home, school, or elsewhere...24/7, 365 days a year!

All of our courses are led by expert instructors, many of whom are nationally known authors.

Trial Questions: Please contact Emily Mageski from Gale with any feedback, questions or issues relating to your trial of Learn4Life. (emily.mageski@cengage.com or 248-699-8386)
