WASHINGTON (AP) - Georgetown University is offering free classes to federal workers who are furloughed because of the government shutdown.

This is the second round of classes the university is offering since the shutdown began on Oct. 1. The first round of classes filled up in a matter of days.

Georgetown says the classes are designed with government workers in mind. Topics have included management skills and social media. Each worker is limited to one class each.

The classes are offered through Georgetown's School of Continuing Studies.
