When tourists visit Gettysburg National Military Park they see a picturesque landscape of open fields and rolling hills. However, for three days in 1863 this site was home to one of the most important battles in American history.
Nicholas Wiley, a graduate of the Penn State geographic information system (GIS) certificate program, is trying to bring this experience to life with the InSite Gettysburg app.

Anthony Robinson's Coursera-delivered MOOC, "Maps and the Geospatial Revolution," ended on August 26, 2013 and was, by all accounts, a huge success! Specific data on participation, completion rates, "click throughs" to our World Campus program websites, etc. will be forthcoming. For now, I am thrilled to share the feedback that has been voluntarily entered by participants on "CourseTalk," an independent website where individuals can share their personal reviews of MOOCs they've taken. You will see that Anthony successfully reached Rock Star status!

We have created an online discussion group for our community and we would love to have you join us! "Yammer" is an enterprise social networking tool that is in use at Penn State. It functions like a cross between a discussion forum, Facebook, and Google Docs. The web-based discussion tool allows you to post, reply, attach files, collaborate on documents, etc. It is restricted to just the Penn State community and one can create a group for a specific topic - like ours!
