On-Line Courses on How to Use/Create Podcasts, Wikis, and Second Life for Education

The Consultants-E is an educational company specializing in distance learning and foreign language study. They do offer on-line courses, many of which are given on the island of EduNation2 in Second Life. I received their course schedule this morning and thought I would pass it on to you if you are interested in learning more about wikis, podcasts, and educating via Second Life.


Dates: 15 - 30 November 2007

Field Report from the Chicago Colloquium for Digital Humanities, Day Two

The second (and final day) of the DHCS Colloquium ran from 9 - 1 and followed a slightly different format than the previous day. Three papers were followed by a panel discussion which was then followed by closing remarks and a thirty-minute near-extempore speech summing up the themes of the conference and asking for what to pursue next year. I'll sum up the important bits (at least to me) first, and then will get a bit shouty at the end. Fair warning.

Today's papers… Continue

Field Report from the Chicago Colloquium for Digital Humanities, Day One

The Chicago Colloquium for Digital

Humanities and Computer Science (DHCS)
is the brainchild of Dr.

Martin Mueller, humanist and luminary, who has midwifed such projects

of global importance as the Perseus Project (albeit for English

literature as opposed to Classics) and Wordhoard. 2007

marked the second installment of the conference hosted by

Northwestern… Continue

Lithuanian Latin Podcasts (Catullus and Horace set to original music)

I discovered a beautiful pair of Latin podcasts from Vilniaus Universitetas' Klasikines Filologijos Katedra (School of Classical Philology), songs sung by Classics student, Julija Butkevičiūtė. The songs feature the full lyrics of Catullus 51 and Horace Odes I.11 and are accompanied by piano. Haunting, spare, and pretty, with good pronunciation to boot!… Continue

Diogenes v3.1 released: Free Latin/Greek program/database (nb: 64 MB download)

"Integrating ICT into the classics classroom", by Bob Lister

In the summer 2007 issue of The Journal of Classics Teaching, Bob Lister (Cambridge) writes an excellent article on the state of IT (or ICT) in Classics at the high school level, comparing technology use now against an initial survey done in the 1990s. From my experience here in the States, it looks like there is parity between the US and the UK; the questions of integrating IT and Classics for blended pedagogy are universal. Well worth the read. While I could not find an electronic copy freely… Continue

Going Native (digitally?) in the High School Latin Classroom

I've made a decision. Actually it was Rose Williams who helped me make it. Sometime this fall, yours truly, the eponymous eClassicist himself (and friend to commas), will be going into the contemporary high school Latin classroom. Let it be said that I took a whole lot of German in high school in the 1980s when computers were for programming classes only. I took my Latin in both college and graduate school back when Al Gore was busy inventing the… Continue
