I have a few descriptions below (I also put this up on the main page of the website).
1. I have created a digital archive of
nearly 2,000 slides that Prof. Dan Guilliard had taken when he was teaching at the university (The Guilliard Collection). The slides were digitized, tagged with metadata, corrected for any abnormalities in the photos and saved in an archive (as ttif and jpeg).
2. My Talking Map
Project. This will be exhibited in the library at the
California State University, East Bay Campus in Fall 2013. I have made 5 large maps of the Mediterranean and have inserted Tags onto the maps. These Tags lead either to photo albums or videos I have created from archaeological sites. Some of these photos come from my own collection, others from the Guilliard Collection, and friends that have been
willing to share their own photos with me for this project.
3. The Mapping of the Decline
and Fall of the Roman Empire/Barbarian Incursion Project. I will be creating interactive maps showing, decade by decade, the invasion of the Barbarians into Roman territory. The primary focus will be to examine the
sustainability of fighting wars on numerous fronts, showing resources, roads, laws, and tax information. These maps will include data from the following sources: economic, geographical, archaeological and textual.
4. The East Bay Warrior Project. I will be documenting (oral histories, video, textual) the journeys of veterans who are now students at the university.
5. A Walk Through
Pompeii. I will be creating an outdoor virtual museum that will allow anyone with a smart phone to scan object I will make on a 3D printer (such as a house from Pompeii). The user will scan the object and information and material will show up using augmented reality. The user will then be able to move onto the next building, scan it, and enjoy 'walking' through Pompeii.
6. Prof. Linda Ivey, Dr. Nancy Park and I just received funding to create the online versions of HIST 1014, 1015 and 1016 (The World History sequence). Much of the focus for these designs will be creating digital history sources (podcasts, videos) for use in these online classrooms.
