During OLLI’s upcoming Fall  2021 term (September 13 to November 19), approximately 50 percent of classes will be held online. Most instructors will use Zoom videoconferencing to deliver their classes “live” in real time over the internet.

Using videoconferencing, you will be able to share PowerPoint presentations and other documents, web pages, and videos, and allow students to ask questions.

To be comfortable with Zoom by the time you teach your first class using it, you will need to familiarize yourself with Zoom before the first day of class. You can practice using Zoom offering a "Class Zero" (Zoom practice session). The guide available at the link below was created by experienced OLLI instructors to give you detailed information that will help you become familiar with Zoom and learn best practices for using Zoom to offer OLLI classes.

OLLI is providing Zoom support for anyone needing help.
