Tips and processes for OLLI online instructors

UD OLLI Online class recordings

UD OLLI Online Policy Regarding Recording of Classes

  • The Distance Viewing Team will record select classes to upload to the OLLI distance-viewing site. The selected classes will be announced in the OLLI Statewide Update emails, and links to those classes will be shared with registered members as they become available.
  • Members may not record any class at any time.
  • Instructors may record classes for their own use (such as reviewing their own performance) as long as they notify the class ahead of time.
  • Instructors may record their own classes to share with members of the class upon request (such as if a member misses a class), at their own discretion.
  • Instructors who choose to record their classes as outlined above must inform their class members before recording begins, and then re-state for the record once they begin to record.
  • Recording as outlined above is solely at the discretion of the instructor. No instructor will be required to record any class.
  • Other than the Distance Viewing Team, no one may record a course for later sharing outside the OLLI Online program without the prior knowledge and consent of the program managers.
