We will talk about host and co-host vs. participant and the difference between what each of the roles can and cannot do. We’ll review the various Zoom “icons” on the Zoom controls menu; especially focusing on the use of the Participants List, the Chat function, and the Reactions buttons. We will also explore the ‘View’ features of Zoom, which allow you to optimize your personal perspective of the Zoom meeting.

  • Basics for Facilitators

    Are You Camera Ready?

    Light Up Your Face

    Find a quiet place for your computer that gets strong WiFi and ideally, well lit. It's hard for us to forge a human connection over video, even more so if we can't see one another's face. Use the preview on the screen to judge your lighting.

    If the room has a window, make sure you’re facing it so the natural light shines on your face.

    Avoid any light source that is shines on your computer or webcam. You will be washed out and it makes it very difficult for anyone else on Zoom to see you. In fact, it’s distracting.

  • TWO TYPES OF OLLI AT DU ONLINE FACILITATORS

  • OLLI at DU welcomes facilitators to offer their courses online via Zoom.  We provide multiple training workshops throughout the year which are described and listed on this page.

    We have two designations for online faciitators - HOSTED and SELF-SUFFICIENT.

    Generally, a first time online facilitator for OLLI at DU is "hosted" by a DU staff member using the DU staff member's email account for Zoom.  The staff member opens the Zoom room for each class and remains available throughout the class meeting.

    A facilitator becomes "self-sufficient" when they are able to open the Zoom room by themselves using a DU email account which is provided and conduct the class via Zoom (with the support of a member who has volunteered to be a class assistant).

    Here are two documents which describe the difference between a HOSTED and a SELF-SUFFICIENT FACILITATOR.
