As April rolls into May, our (now named!) digital history project is now in its beta testing phase. We are sending it off to our project advisors and to The Pew Center for Arts & Heritage (our grant funders) for some feedback. We’re especially excited to hear back from all the students and teachers who have tested out our story content and site functionality over the past three years. While we still have some kinks – design-wise and interface-wise – to work out, we can say that we’re happy with the outcome, albeit exhausted.
More news about “Doctor or Doctress?” coming in September as we plan for our ‘official’ launch. For more project and grant information, see our earlier blog, Playing with the Past: A Digital History Toolkit, or visit the interpretation planning section of our website here.
