Technology and the Humanities: New Collaborative Tools for Improved Research and Pedagogy

Wednesday, February 11 | 11:15AM–12:00PM | California Pavilion Promenade, Second Floor
Session Type: Professional Development
This presentation will focus on a suite of web-based tools designed for use in humanistic research, teaching, and learning. Presented in a pedagogical context, these tools include a framework for media-rich annotation of all modes of content presentation, including text, image, and video, as well as a state-of-the-art, collaboratively developed interactive image viewer that can be used to engage with objects of all types within museum and library collections and beyond. Included in these new tools is the ability to gather and interact with robust analytics that allow for measurement of user engagement.
