JUST ANNOUNCED: Virtual Lectures by One Day University

  Last modified on April 18th, 2020

One Day University is offering an upgrade to our quarantined lives. Wondering what Abraham Lincoln would do in this crisis? I just finished watching an outstanding live-streamed lecture by Professor Louis Masur of Rutgers University, who provided insight into how Lincoln developed coping mechanisms to become one of the greatest figures of history.

Well known for their careful selection of the most popular professors lecturing on wide range of topics, people choose One Day University to learn more about things they care about, and also discover topics they knew nothing about before.

One member recently stated, “This was our first time attending One Day University and we LOVED it!! I liked that I could learn about 3 entirely different subjects, from professors around the country, and still have part of my Saturday to play.”

Steven Schragis, the Co-Director of One Day University, had been considering building out his online division for some time. When they had to cancel all of their upcoming live events, his team worked around the clock to deliver the same exceptional programing virtually.

Now, members now access almost 200 already recorded events from around the world – and they’ll also have access to all of the upcoming live streamed events.

Of course, the nature of a top tier professor lecturing in front of everyone brings about a great communal sense, but now there is a charming twist: viewers will get a closer glimpse into the lives of these world-renowned academics as they broadcast from their living rooms and home offices!

One Day U Co-Director Kevin Brennan stated  that converting everything to online was effortless as professors are now teaching from their homes. He stressed that his staff is exceptionally tech-savvy and were able to get their members up and running without issue.

As events all over the world have been cancelled and people are looking for ways to stay connected, learn, and enjoy their time at home, Schragis tells us that One Day University has partnered with newspapers around the country so that they can let their audience know about their new streaming services. As far as participation goes, Schragis said, “Well, we contacted 61 newspapers, and so far 60 out of 61 said, yes, we would like to help promote One Day University!”
