In keeping with this mission, OLLI staff seeks to balance the rights and needs of its members with the responsibility of each individual member to support the needs of an engaged learning community.

Good Digital Citizenship

Digital citizenship is a term used to define the appropriate and responsible use of technology among users. When we share materials via PowerPoint, handouts, or Zoom recordings, for example, it is important to be transparent:



  1. OLLI requests permission from lecturers and/or guest presenters before sharing class recordings. This request is made on the course proposal form and determines if the class will be recorded and, if so, how widely recordings will be distributed.
  2. Class presenters, including volunteer instructors and special guests, should reference the creator(s) for photographs, quotations, and/or art used in OLLI class presentations, e.g. in PowerPoint slides and/or printed materials.
  3. OLLI Zoom links for online classes should not be shared with individuals who are not enrolled in the class, including individuals in the same household.
  4. To protect member privacy, email communications from OLLI staff and instructors sent to multiple members will use the bcc option so email addresses are not visible to recipients.
