In the hopes that a more visually appealing syllabus will mean that my students read the thing, I’m turning the first few pages of the HIST2809 syllabus into a comic book. The nuts-and-bolts will be the regular format.(The doctored historical plaques are from Rob MacDougall’s ‘Tecumseh Lies Here‘ augmented reality game).
Oh, and the final project/exam is a version of the Forgery Game.

Very cool! I’m currently in the middle of redesigning my syllabus. It’s going to be more brochure/flyer than comics… ‘though maybe I’ll steal this idea for the intro course I’m teaching. :)
I’d love to say it’s my own idea, but I pinched it from Profhacker! Steal away!
Aw yeah, I found Comic Life. Intro to BioAnth just got comic-ified. Can’t decide if I’ll stick with it, though…
This is great! A wonderful example of digital history, haha. I stumbled across this blog because of the course I’m taking on digital history…I’m going to have to suggest this to my professor…
