RESOURCE: Timeline Travel e-Learning Platform
Timeline Travel: An Alternative Tool for Architectural History Learning and Teaching is a recently completed EU project funded under the framework of 2017 Erasmus+ KA203 Strategic Partnerships.
Two major outputs of the project, Timeline Travel Tool and Timeline Travel e-Learning Platform, are ready to use on timelinetravel.net. Timeline Travel Tool pins the buildings of historic cities on a timeline and on a map, in order to trigger visual cognition to facilitate learning architectural history. It gives users the chance of making time travel while studying architectural history as it is possible to go forward and backward on the timeline to see changes in architecture and style, and to learn about the buildings by simply clicking on them. You may see the evolution of building activities, changes of styles and variations in patronage at a glance.
Timeline Travel Tool can be used to discover architectural histories of project’s prototype cities, Istanbul, Rome, Ravenna, Bursa and Edirne, or to create personal timelines. These could be used in lectures as a digital teaching/learning companion, or as an interactive self-learning tool. Instructors may assign their students Timeline Travel projects in a learning-by-doing approach, or it could even be used for research purposes.
Timeline Travel e-Learning Platform, on the other hand, is an e-learning platform dedicated to architectural history and it offers several publicly available courses created by the project team about Byzantine, Ottoman, Renaissance, Baroque, Late Ancient architectures. It brings articles, videos, external links, quizzes, tasks and connections to buildings on Timeline Travel Tool for an enjoyable self-learning experience. You may use this free e-learning platform to prepare your own lectures and to assign them to your students. You can create private groups for your students, communicate them through forums, monitor their progress and grade their tasks or assignments. Timeline Travel e-Learning Platform can be adopted to any other subject or field and we are looking forward to seeing newly prepared content by scholars around the world.
