I remember coming to this class without any idea what digital humanities was. And of course, there isn’t a perfect explanation for it. However, I’ve learned a lot throughout this course. I learned what digital humanities can do, and just what power it holds. In this class, I learned the importance of metadata and preserving information online. I learned about…

One thing I found interesting was the “highlight” function. Highlighting “giver” and “recipient” produced different results that add to understanding of the dataset. In the following image, “giver” is highlighted. It’s showcased by the purple box, and it proves…

After setting both to geocoordinates, the dots appeared to display where the photos appeared from. Palladio and Google Fusion Tables were similar but had some different functions. One thing…

For example,  you can choose just a small section of the data to view (the second picture). This is another example of what you can do with digital humanities.

I think…

We formed groups and created an online exhibit to showcase our research and further develop our knowledge. My group focused on martyrdom. The exhibit itself was simple to make, but it was interesting as well. It was the first…
