SU professor says he's moving online education in a new direction

Syracuse University professor Scott Nicholson is teaching a class of more than 300 people from the comfort of his own home..

There, Nicholson, an associate professor in SU’s School of Information Studies, or iSchool, records a daily video blog about how libraries can bring people together through gaming programs, whether it’s an older board game like Monopoly or a newer electronic game like Dance Dance Revolution.  What makes his course,“Gaming in Libraries,”  different from other online classes is that his is taught entirely through YouTube.
