U3A Port Phillip take a bow! The smooth transition to a new teaching and learning environment has been accomplished by volunteers who have worked tirelessly to get new systems in place so that classes could continue.
The hard work and skills of our IT team has been critical in this achievement. This team has not only developed and maintained systems but provided materials and support for tutors and participants including sitting in on classes to ensure all is working well.
It is not surprising that Victorian and interstate U3As are contacting the Working Group asking for guidance on Zoom.
The Working Group continues to monitor Government regulations. At this stage, while there may be some lessening of restrictions coming in, our current online arrangements will remain at least until the end of term 2.
However, we do not rest on our laurels, we are trying new things to augment our offerings. Our U3A monthly Saturday seminars are back, commencing on 16 May. They will come to you as Zoom webinars. Just log in for the Saturday seminar on the U3APP website.
