The Ask OLLI blog is a resource for Osher Lifelong Learning Institute
administrators to facilitate discussion on a variety of topics related to the creation and management of OLLI institutes nationwide.
Entries to the blog are called "posts" and can only be submitted by blog editors. Please contact Anne Cardale at the OLLI National Resource Center if you have an article suggestion for the AskOLLI editors.
Each post has a "comment" section where blog subscribers can submit their own remarks and
responses to the post. A subscriber must be logged in to comment on a post. A login link is available at the bottom of the right-hand
column, as well as at the end of each posting page.
Although the Ask OLLI blog is publicly viewable, commenting is closed to non-subscribers. For more information on Ask OLLI, or if you wish to create a subscriber account please contact Anne Cardale.

Dee Aguilar, OLLI at University of Nebraska-Lincoln, Asks OLLI:
If your OLLI offers computer courses, please help us by answering the following questions:
a. Who develops/provides the course curriculum?
b. Are courses taught by member volunteers?
c. How do you recruit volunteers?
d. Who trains volunteers to teach these courses?
e. How challenging is it to keep the volunteers?
May we contact you with additional questions?

Does your OLLI connect members to your host institute’s community service activities? If so, does your OLLI have a course or event to help members explore a volunteer site match?
