This project aims to create a user friendly database that will allow a hands-on interaction, of both study and research, with 3000 slides that represent multiple facets of Middle Eastern environment geography, archaeology, and culture. By integrating various existing tools such as Google Earth and Site Builder, as well as texts, bibliographies, time tables, glossaries, and indexes that we will create, the database will allow students to navigate through the collection, intersect and correlate the material they need, and pursue their own path of study and research. The database will become a central component of the learning experience for ACABS277, but will also be available to the entire university community (access with U of M unique name and password) and available to use by other courses and instructors. Language course of Middle Eastern languages, both modern and ancient, as well as courses on history, politics and culture, can all benefit from this resource.
