Making Digital History

Higher Education Academy logo

Making Digital History was funded by the Higher Education Academy as part of their Digital Literacy in the Disciplines scheme. The project was designed to improve students’ digital literacy by engaging them actively in creating digital learning objects in partnership with staff and fellow students. These activities were embedded in the curriculum in several modules at different levels during the academic year 2013-14. Students used the learning design tool Xerte, an Open Educational Resource (OER), to create online learning objects to engage a variety of audiences with history.

On this page we have uploaded links to all proposals, reports and presentations relating to the HEA-funded Making Digital History project.
