Readings

Activities

  • Create a set (3-4) of draft personas for your digital history project.
  • Create a draft exhibit in your Omeka site using the items you created last week.
  • Write a blog post reflecting on the differences between digital history and digital public history? What is the critical role of audience? What is the approach to engagement? What is the theory of history that is being communicated to site visitors? How have these considerations effected your choices in building your own digital exhibit?
