The World History Videodisc, CD-ROM, and Master Guide: Non-European History [Multimedia.]
This resource represents a virtual library of still and moving images, documents, maps, sound clips and text which make up the history of the non-European world from prehistoric times to the early 1990s. The interdisciplinary range of materials included is compatible with standard textbooks in middle and high school social science, social studies, history, and art history courses and is designed for interactive use by teachers and/or students. The resource provides access to 2,400 images, captions, and overviews for research, independent study, or a wide range of instructional purposes. Motion film sequences from persons and events in political history, popular culture, and the arts, are provided. Narrative information is included. The materials are arranged in 15 sections. Each section contains a narrated overview which may be used as an introduction or a review of the period presented. The CD-ROM contains a library of 2,400 captioned images of historical figures, events, political cartoons, historic sites and artifacts, maps, and works of art and architecture. Sound bites provide brief recordings of recent historic figures, from Mohandas Gandhi to Nelson Mandela, speaking in their own voice about their personal philosophies or the relevant issues with which they are associated. This visual and audiovisual data is organized by sections and subsections of world geography. Basic, intermediate, and advanced level student quizzes are provided on the CD-ROM. The barcoded, annotated videodisc Guidebook, and the CD-ROM Index locate specific items and allow data grouping by keyword category. (MM)
