In order for you to experience the quality and informative nature of our classes, we are sharing one of our more popular sessions by Professor Brian Merkel. His goal with the class is to empower you during this unusual time.

What Members are Saying About Online Classes

Here is what current members have to say about their online experience:

Online classes are working great.  Nice not to have to leave home, especially in inclement weather.
I love the online experience. I prefer taking classes this way.

It was so very convenient to be able to access this pre-recorded class when I could.  It's an appealing aspect to "attending" more classes. I hope it will be continued in the Spring.
No travel, watch from the comfort of home, tune in 5 minutes early dressed in whatever.  It's a win-win.
I am loving the online experiences. I was happy that I could pause the video, as I did need to do this.
I like these courses online. Being able to have these classes without the worry of weather or travel I think is great.


How We Will Assist You

Training Sessions & One-on-One Assistance

Susan or a member of the online team will show you around and work through any issues you may have. Our goal is to connect one-on-one with each LLI member to introduce everyone to the LLI online classroom. If you are not yet a member but want to see what online learning is like with LLI, contact the LLI office at and we will show you around our online classroom.
