“You can know something about everything,” These were my thoughts when I was applying to Carleton. The idea of Liberal Arts really fascinated me. I am the kind of person who tries to know at least something about everything. I think Liberal Arts are really important and I am very happy that I was able to do a small part in promoting them.
This term I worked on making an Omeka Sample Site that serves two functions: 1) Provide a sample site to Carleton students and community and; 2) Provide some basic information about liberal arts. The site can be accessed here. This site was also added to reclaim’s EdTech resource list:
The website can be accessed by students who aim to work on their own Omeka projects in future. The main page of the website looks like this:
I think Liberal Arts are important and help the students in becoming critical thinkers and solve novel problems. With the increasing influence of technology, it is important we add these technological advancements in our humanistic, literary and scientific studies. I really enjoyed working on this project and I hope this is helpful for students as well.
