About "Oprah's Lifeclass"

Produced by Harpo Studios, the award-winning "Oprah's Lifeclass" is a richly interactive worldwide social experience for millions of students who participate in inspiring conversations with Oprah Winfrey on-air, online and via social media. For each episode, Oprah is joined by a hand-picked expert, and together they interact with viewers to share principles and tools that can help people live more meaningful and fulfilling lives. Prior to the scheduled airing of Oprah's Lifeclass on OWN, key influencers in the social sphere on that topic are given a sneak peek of the episode, and invited to participate in the Sunday night social dialogue. "Oprah's Lifeclass" consistently ranks in the top ten "most social shows" in primetime. After airing, the conversations continue throughout the social space and in a digital classroom at Oprah.com, where tools are provided to help viewers reach their own "Aha" moments via an extensive companion curriculum, including class notes (thanks to Storify) and assessments, and Daily Life Work questions that can be saved in their custom profile.
