Nutshell

Diving into the world of digital history can, and will be frustrating. We have many projects this quarter to help you learn the mechanics as well as understand the philosophical, theoretical, and applicable lessons to understanding and creating digital history: The past at your fingertips. This chart, as well as the calendar on the home (Syllabus) page will help you keep track of your assignments. Please explore the links on this website, as there are many helpful tools, tips, and explanations that may help you tie digital history and public history together.

Your grade will be reduced if you hand work in late without permission. It is especially important to have collaborative work done on time so that it does not affect your classmates.
