  1. A short guide to Mr. Le Sage's historical maps, which will enable every one to learn history by himself, as well as to teach it to any one in a very short time. by Emmanuel Auguste Dieudonne, 2010-07-23

This is the online version of a paper scheduled to be given at the January 2002 American Historical Association Meeting in San Francisco by Sara W. Tucker, Professor of History, Washburn University, Topeka, Kansas, . It will be presented in the H-Net Bill Cecil-Fronsman Memorial Panel on Teaching Innovation, in the Westin St. Francis California East Room, Sunday, January 6 in a session running 8:30 - 10:30 am. Introduction For a number of years now I have spent a large amount of my time teaching introductory sections of World History - a challenge that I enjoy greatly. Over the past several years I've also started teaching online classes offered completely via the internet - another teaching challenge that I love. Not everyone envies me this rich teaching life - quite a few of my colleagues consider me crazy, first to want to teach the bottomless topic of world history and second, to add the great complication of learning to use online computer technology. Certainly there are days when I wonder if they don't have a point. But usually I tell them that if computers are sometimes the problem, they are also often a part of the solution, and nowhere more so than in what they can do for all confirmed map enthusiasts such as myself. I've been using maps as much as possible for my entire teaching career, now over twenty-five years. Since I teach every area and era of world history, I've almost never met a map that I didn't like - and want to acquire for one or another teaching situation. I regularly use hundreds and hundreds of "filled out" maps both in the traditional classroom and in my online classes, as well as increasingly putting them online in various study and teaching resources web-pages. I use blank outline maps for student exercises and tests, and as a base on which to make my own maps of many sorts. Next semester, when I will be on sabbatical, I plan to teach myself simple animation, so I can begin making my own "moving maps."

Our aim is to teach general knowledge rather than technical software training Swedenpossesses a unique and vast collection of historical maps a material
The GeoProcessing Unit is the center of geocomputing at the department of Human Geography, Stockholm University.
We deal with most aspects of geographic data processing but our main task is research and development within the field of Geographic Information and Analysis (GIA) and cartography. We do also have the main responsibility for the departments educational program covering these topics. Tuition
Our educational program in cartography & geographic data processing covers both basic knowledge as well as courses reflecting our specialties. Our aim is to teach general knowledge rather than "technical" software training whereby we can focus on knowledge like; the map as information carrier, map-design and spatial problem-solving. However a well-equipped computer-lab is available for exercises. A result of the evolution of digital techniques a clear distinction between cartography and geographic data processing hardly is possible to do. This is reflected in our educational program offered. Of course this program is undergoing continuous changes why we believe that we can offer an "up-to-date" education of, both national and international, high standard. Research and development
The focus is put on landscape-analysis and landscape-visualization. Sweden possesses a unique and vast collection of historical maps - a material being produced since the 17th century when the Swedish survey started. Since the beginning of this century Swedish geographers has been using this material in order to acquire knowledge of the historical landscape. The research concerning the cultural landscape carried out at the department of Human Geography, to a great extent based on these sources, is top ranked, both in a domestic perspective, as well as internationally. Modern techniques and methods within the field of geographic data processing and digital cartography is an integrated and important part of this work. Another important field of work is landscape visualization. This involves the use of advanced methods and techniques concerning 3-dimensional modeling, animation, and digital video.

    City Spotlight: The Man Beyond the Map Trained as an architect, John Wiebenson moved to the Washington, D.C. area to teach this subject at the University of Maryland. But his passion for drawing sometimes takes him another direction mapmaking. To Wiebenson, maps are not just pieces of paper stuffed in back pockets, but multifaceted guides that inspire people, young and old, to step out and explore. Why do you shift between architecture and mapmaking? People are trained in architecture to develop skills that can easily be used for drawing maps. Mapping is a form of communication that allows us to describe the qualities of a place. In mapmaking we can express issues of dimension or a feel for what places are like. Neighborhood maps are a way to help people hold their neighborhoods in high respect. How did you get interested in mapping Washington, D.C.?

    Volume 1 Number 1 ~ Fall 1998 Teaching Islamic Civilization with Information Technology Corinne Blake N ew types of information technology such as the Internet and CD-ROM can be used to enhance courses in colleges and universities. A large amount of primary material about Islam and Islamic civilizations, for example, is available to students through the Internet, including full texts of the Qur'an in various translations, several collections of Hadith (records of the Prophet Muhammad’s words and deeds), Shi`i and Sufi religious texts, and classics works of Islamic literature. Since this material is mostly translated, it is of limited interest to advanced graduate students, but it is appropriate for undergraduate courses on Islamic religion, history, and civilization as well as for survey courses in world history. Using material from the Internet provides students with access to primary sources and research material that is often unavailable at smaller institutions. It can also expose students to different points of view within the Muslim community. The challenge for already overextended professors is figuring out how to locate these materials and incorporate them into courses. After reviewing primary source material for teaching Islamic civilization that is available online, I'll discuss methods and issues related to incorporating Internet material into courses.

      The Perseus Project is an evolving digital library of resources for the study of the ancient world and beyond. Collaborators initially formed the project to construct a large, heterogeneous collection of materials, textual and visual, on the Archaic and Classical Greek world. Planning for Perseus began in 1985; the project was formally established in July, 1987. Since then, the Perseus Project has published two CD-ROMs and created the on-line Perseus Digital Library. Recent expansion into Latin texts and tools and Renaissance materials has served to add more coverage within Perseus and has prompted the project to explore new ways of presenting complex resources for electronic publication.

    Huckleberry Finn Huckleberry Finn A dventures of Huckleberry Finn is one of Mark Twain's most loved, most influential, and most controversial books. It was banned from the Concord Public Library in 1885, the year of its publication, and Huckleberry Finn ranks number five in the American Library Association's list of the most frequently challenged books of the 1990s. But in 1935, Ernest Hemingway wrote that "all modern American literature comes from one book by Mark Twain called Huckleberry Finn.... All American writing comes from that. There was nothing before. There has been nothing as good since." Not surprisingly, Adventures of Huckleberry Finn is thoroughly represented on the Web. A search for "Huckleberry Finn" will list tens of thousands of pages, making it very difficult to find the information you need. This guide is intended to provide a more focused directory of online resources related to the novel. They range from information about childhood and Mississippi River experiences that Twain drew upon in his writing to the latest controversies about teaching the book in America's schools. Perhaps because it is an especially difficult book to teach, there are more resources online about teaching
