New History Hippocampus Page

The holidays are fast approaching and I wanted to highlight a new Hippocampus History link on the right of this blog page that will make you feel like a kid in a toy store, at least if you love history resources the way I do. At this site you will find some of my articles from this blog, but you will also find highlighted Hippocampus lessons such as today’s Condition of Slaves.

As you know, I’m a big fan of the history lessons that are available at Hippocampus, and whether you are using these in your courses as a text replacement or content supplement, this new web link is sure to help you become more familiar with the history lessons at Hippocampus. In addition, they have included links to other open resources like OER (Open Educational Resources) and the Hewlett Foundation.

On the top right of the page is also a link to customize and create your own hippocampus interface, so as you find lessons that you want students to use, you can create your own page that highlights those lessons and hides those that are not appropriate for your course at this time.

Enjoy playing with the lessons and features at this new Hippocampus page!
