This page gathers together educational resources for Digital Humanities and for Classics.

Note: this is a new page and a place to start collecting resources together. These are not arranged in any order or theme and that can come later when we have more content.

Open Educational Resources for the Digital Humanities: DHOER

These resources are freely and openly available under a CC licence and can be downloaded from Humbox (use DHOER for a keyword search).

Perseus Digital Library: Navigate to the work via the Collections; in some instances, the exact title or Perseus title of a specific work may be unknown. The best way to browse through the works in Perseus is through the Collections.

Hestia: Search the text (for placenames), view Herodotus in Google Earth, or read through the text with the NarrativeMap.

Pelagios: Enabled Linked Ancient Geodata in Open Systems

GapVis: A generic Geoparser platform. Select a text of your choosing.

[1] Classics Confidential: Videocasts of 10-20 minute bite-sized insights into current research.

Learning Latin: Online Latin language exercises and an interactive chronological map of Latin and Greek culture.

Perseids: a collaborative editing platform for source documents.

Alpheios: reading tools for Latin, ancient Greek and Arabic.

Iliados: grammatical and syntactical searches on the Perseus Greek Treebank.

Classical Studies: The Open University's Classical Studies Taster Pages.

Panoply: Animations made from ancient Greek vases.

Textal: A free smartphone app for text analysis. This is currently only available in iOS format (for iPhone and iPad) but an Android version is planned.
