What Members are Saying About Online Classes

This April and May, we were able to pilot a few online classes to our members. Here is what they had to say about their experience:

Video presentations are an excellent substitute to an in-class presentation. This is a significant step toward offering the option to attend LLI classes, especially for potential new LLI members that are unable to attend in person, bad weather situations, or situations such as we are currently experiencing.

It was my first time participating in an online class, so I got to learn some new stuff. Great job by everyone. Thanks for all the extra effort.

Thanks so much for making this possible. I am missing my LLI classes so much. This opportunity certainly helps!

How We Will Assist You

Training Sessions & One-on-One Assistance

Current members have received an email newsletter with a link to LLI's online classroom. 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 prior to registration. 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.
