Imagine being able to take a Yale history course on Gettysburg even if you lived in a nursing home or an assisted living facility.
That is what is happening at the McLean Health Center in the Sorenson Media Center. Stephen Roots works in the Center. He explains "many of our residents want to continue their education, to keep their minds active as it were. The program we've developed makes use of the "Creative Commons" protocol that allows us to use Yale's prerecorded course video, and stream them directly to our media center. "
Today two residents were working with Stephen on the Gettysburg course and pausing the videousing other on-line resources to look at maps to follow along in the lecture.
