OLLI-USF YouTube Channel

Our YouTube channel is a new venture with a lot of room for growth.  When you visit, ask yourself “How could I add something to this?”

OLLI-USF Vimeo Resources

At present we have to link to these video-by-video.  There is currently no single “folder” of OLLI-USF Vimeo videos.  We’re working on that.  Click here for an incomplete but growing list of our videos.

Quora is a commercial “Question and Answer” site.  It is a diamond mine of useful and arcane information.  And, like the rest of the Web, it has its share of trolls.  It is addictive and infuriating.

  1. Having taught OLLI for maybe seven or eight years now, I find that having an opening exercise at every class provides a way to get folks focused in place and excited for the day’s activity. I usually do a very short impromptu writing piece, which regularly generates laughter, community building and allows folks to feel their creativity. Based on feedback and my own experience in classes without “appetite whetting”, I highly recommend it.

    1. Marilyn–Thank you. I’ll leave your idea in the Comments area for a while for others to see and–I hope–add to. Then I’ll add it to our “This Worked for Me” document.
