Historiana is an on-line educational multimedia tool created and managed by EuroClio, that offers students multi-perspective, cross-border and comparative historical sources to supplement their national history textbooks. Historiana is co-funded by the European Union and is part of the satellite networks of Europeana, the European digital library.

As part of the DSI4 project, EuroClio and Europeana are offering a series of Webinars for advanced users of Historiana. These webinars are meant to support more experienced users of Historiana to experiment with the eActivity builder and get some tips and tricks on how to create quality eLearning activities. Each webinar will introduce the participants to the eActivity builder and explain in greater details the reasoning behind the creation of certain eLearning activities. It will also provide some insights on how to make the most out of the eActivity builder. In addition, each webinar will focus on a  particular topic, using exemplar content from the Europeana Collections, and a critical thinking skill.

For those who are not (yet) familiar with Historiana and its tools, it is still possible to get up to gear by exploring the eActivity builder.

These webinars will take place according to the following schedule:

On December 9th, Helen Snelson will be creating an eLearning activity for the Postwar Europe content and will be focusing on using source material as evidence. (register here)

On February 17th, Bridget Martin will be focusing on the Contributions to WWI and talking about perspective. (register here)
