Note that there is no narration or sound with object videos.

Digital Object Study materials are designed to be as flexible as possible. A single object can be used to tell a myriad of stories or to prompt many conversations! We can schedule a discussion or lecture to go with the video to match your teaching goals. The video can also serve as raw material should you want to discuss the item yourself, or allow students to explore and analyze an object on their own.

Support Materials for building your assignments.

Gain access to files for any of the items listed here and/or schedule a companion discussion for your class. Don’t see the object you need? Make a request!
