And the work goes on with ThingLink. I've created a fake History Department page that I will pitch to my colleagues in a few months. I also have been working on my "Help Desk" page. I am hoping that his will cut down on the number of questions my students have, such as "How do I get into JSTOR?" I have the picture created (on Photoshop) and now all I have to do is to upload it to Thinglink and then create the content (by way of Jing, a screen-capture software program). I don't think that will take me too long to do.
I also thought of another interesting and useful Digital History project. I had mentioned that I want to do a map of the Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire. It dawned on me today that people are always talking about the spread of Christianity throughout the Roman Empire, but like Fall of Rome, the maps are amorphous. If it really did spread quickly, there should be some data out there that will prove or disprove this. It sounds like a fun project!
