On-Line Meetings

A number of Edinburgh u3a groups are now having regular on-line meetings. More are likely to follow. Although we all want live meetings again as soon as possible, on-line meetings may continue as well because they offer help to people who cannot attend live meetings. Any u3a Edinburgh member who would like to join a Group if it has on-line sessions but could not attend live meetings, is advised to contact the Group Leader.

On-Line meeting formats:
EU3A groups are using at least three on-line meeting formats:
