Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)

This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.

FVM at DHSI 2012

The Fort Vancouver Mobile project was featured prominently in discussions last week at the Digital Humanities Summer Institute in Victoria, British Columbia, where Creative Media and Digital Culture faculty (Dene Grigar, John Barber, Will Luers, Brett Oppegaard and Nicholas Schiller) taught a week-long course called “Creating Digital Humanities Projects for the Mobile Environment.” The international group of scholars taking this course -- from such universities as Yale, Emory, Howard, Michigan, and Toronto -- learned about conceptualizing space, coding and programming, and developing mobile architecture, design and content. The proof-of-concept apps produced included programs for special library collections, literary walks, and teaching foreign languages.
