OldSchool. A distance learning platform for 65+

Dr. Burcu Demiray (URPP DynAge) and her colleagues recently presented a project for a distance learning platform tailored for the 65+ at the Online Hackathon VersusVirus. It aims to prevent the isolation of seniors and to provide tools for life-long learning, and we are excited to announce that it was one of the 42 projects (out of 263) to be highlighted by the jury (more information can be found here). This platform corresponds to one component of a larger "Swiss Digital Education Network 60+" developed by Prof. Dr. Mike Martin and Dr. Marc Grosjean (both URPP DynAge), among others, in collaboration with the Swiss Federation of Senior Universities and the People's Universities of Switzerland.
