- Curatorial note from Digital Pedagogy in the Humanities: Incorporating digital projects into humanities survey courses can be a challenge, as covering a wide range of material is the primary mission of the course. In this assignment, the Timeline project assists with the heavy lifting of providing historical context for the works on the syllabus and gives students exposure to thinking about information as data, doing research in online databases, and reflecting on the process of producing their contribution. TimelineJS, part of the Knight Lab Storytelling toolkit, uses a Google Sheets template to feed into the Timeline platform, so students need not learn to code to produce a visually compelling end product. The assignment adapts the University of Oregon FERPA release to give students the option of completing the assignment anonymously or offline. Students are given agency in how they complete the assignment and ownership of their contribution to the final product.
