Section Information for Spring 2018
This course, which satisfies the university’s IT requirement, prepares students to use and understand a wide variety of current and emerging digital technologies, including maps, data sets, and visualizations. We’ll explore these technologies in the context of a history class, but no background in history is required. We’ll discuss how to find and use digital information for research, including how to write and publish effectively online. We’ll explore issues of ethics, copyright and information security, and experiment with a wide variety of online tools and technologies. Additionally, we’ll cover advanced search methods, and online publishing platforms. Over the course of the semester, students will use these technologies to create and publish an individual research project (of their choosing) about a sensational trial in American history.
Satisfies the general education requirement in information technology (IT, all).
