FERRISBURGH, Vt. (WCAX) - The advent of most schools and colleges going online this year has brought learning through correspondence courses back into the spotlight. But with a computer and internet, it’s a whole lot different than it was decades ago.

At the Rokeby Museum in Ferrisburgh Montreal artist Courtney Clinton is looking at the history of remote arts and education to see how elements from the museum’s collection can be made more accessible during the pandemic. Clinton is producing a modern-day correspondence class of her own to go with it.

Céline McArthur spoke with Clinton and the Rokeby’s Allison Gregory to see how it works.
