What is Video Catch-up?
Video Catch-up is a new option for patrons who would like to see a program but may have a conflict in their schedule or are out of town. Patrons unable to make it to OLLI Boca will be able to view programs for which they have registered in a video format online from their patron account ANYTIME, ANYWHERE, for up to two weeks after the program date.
How Does Video Catch-up Work?
If you register for a program that includes the video catch-up option you will…

Why don’t I have a video option for a program I purchased?
- Videos are posted 48-hours after a live program ends.
- Not all programs offer the video option.
- If the program was watched in person at OLLI Boca the video option will not be available.
How do I know if a program for which I registered has the video option?
A video button will be displayed with the course information that you registered for in your patron login account.
Do I need to download any special software to watch the videos?
No special software is needed, just an internet connection and a modern web browser. You can watch on a smartphone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer.
Can someone else attend a program in my place?
Yes, to be admitted, you must complete a transfer form indicating that you are authorizing someone else to attend the lecture in your place. Please note that your guest must create an OLLI Boca account, including the license plate information of the vehicle that will be parked on the FAU campus, in order to attend the program.
Please keep in mind that if someone else attends in your place, you will no longer be able to watch the lecture via “Video Catch-up.”
