What is UT OLLI Online?

The COVID-19 pandemic shut down on-campus university operations in March 2020, just before the third and final session of UT OLLI's 2019-2020 program year. As a result, the Spring 2020 session was implemented entirely online and a collaborative curriculum was offered across all five programs. Members in any of the programs were able to participate in live, online seminars & lectures. In addition, all webinars conducted were recorded and put online for "on-demand" content for members to access at their leisure.

Now UT OLLI is offering throughout the entire 2020-2021 program year (Fall 2020, Winter 2021, and Spring 2021) an improved, online experience until members can return to campus. Member-driven curriculum committees from all five UT OLLI programs have contributed to build the upcoming sessions' schedule of virtual seminars & lectures offered via the Zoom video-conferencing platform.
