Administrative History: Email from Chase Crispin, May 7, 2018: "Those videos started when my O&M instructor, LeAnna MacDonald, was teaching the Braille Plus to several of her students. Some of them were struggling as I understood how to use the device, so she suggested that I make some short tutorials that her other students could watch and learn to use the product. I've always enjoyed teaching others, so I had a lot of fun making these videos. LeAnna has known Bob Brasher for years, so she sent one of our early tutorials on to him, and APH encouraged me to keep going. That evolved into the videos on other products that you are cataloging. Interestingly, as a music education major now, I think doing teaching like that at such a young age really helped me think through how to explain things to others in a way that really benefits me now."
