This project utilizies unique, relevant ways of curating art and music related to Dante's Commedia, via digital multimedia applications, to enrich the course Journey of Transformation. Media include: fine art, videos, PowerPoint presentations, interactive astronomy graphics, and music recordings. All work will be archivable, uploadable, defined by a URL, and would represent a facet of student learning. Through digital media presentations, students demonstrate what they have learned in a 360˚ way and round out their awareness of Dante's art as part of a tradition instead of a required text for a required class.
