What lightweight digital tools can be incorporated into digitally inflected assignments in humanities courses? How can assignments ask students both to create using these tools and critique the affordances & constraints of these tools? Let’s roll up our sleeves and play with some of the following tools and imagine their use in a range of humanities courses:
- Timeline JS for creating beautiful, interactive timelines.
- StoryMap for telling stories with a spatial dimension.
- SoundCite for inline audio citation.
- Hypothesis, which makes it possible to annotate, critique, and takes notes on top of writing on the web.
Let’s play! Follow + share + contribute to our shared collaborative session notes.
