Minot's Barb Solberg on Online Learning ~ Meteor Watching ~ Former Actress Karolyn Grimes


Monday, November 16, 2020 - Online learning is everywhere. There's been steady growth throughout this century, but it exploded during the global pandemic. We visit with Minot's Barb Solberg, who co-wrote The Student Guide to the World Wide Web and WebCT back in 1999. ~~~ It's a great time to watch for shooting stars, as Chuck Lura explains in today's Natural North Dakota essay. ~~~ An event was scheduled in Bismarck called “It’s a Wonderful Life: An Evening with Zuzu” featuring Karolyn Grimes who portrayed Zuzu Bailey in the movie “It’s a Wonderful Life.” Due to the pandemic, however, that event is on hold, but we decided to go ahead with a scheduled visit with Karolyn, who had quite a career as a child actor until tragedy changed the trajectory of her life. She joins us from her home in California.
