Does your OLLI post class content online?

Posted on July 12th, 2011 by Anne Cardale, OLLI National Resource Center

Katherine Sangster, OLLI at the University of Texas, Austin, Asks OLLI:

Does your OLLI post class content online? At this time our OLLI does not, and I’m interested hearing from OLLIs that post traditional class content online in the form of podcasts, videos, streaming, interactive content, etc. Any information would be appreciated: the rationale, the logistics, how the content is determined, permissions from the presenters, who accesses OLLI online, how it is funded. We want to explore opportunities to enhance what we offer members, while supporting the primary goal of learning in community.

  1. UR OLLI: we set up a WIKI via Google - - very easy to do; here’s the link to our WIKI if you want to take a look: I am the administrator, and anyone can view the WIKI and a Google login is not needed to view
