Celtic Art and Cultures
By providing students with a large and varied database of multimedia materials -- not only the traditional static images, but also animations, reconstructions, and interactive exercises -- and creating course assignments that require students to explore the database to develop and share their views on course topics, this course enables students to become more fully immersed in the subject than is otherwise possible. Ultimately, students will be empowered to research, design, and write a "virtual" exhibition catalogue. This multimedia database is not designed to replace the instructor of the course, but instead will serve as central focus of the course, providing the instructor with a context for weekly lectures and providing students with the means to develop a richer understanding of the course topic through interaction with the multimedia materials.
