Google has launched its Google Cultural Institute, a repository of exhibits and collections from museums and archives from around the world. Linked to Google Art Project, it allows for mulitmedia interactive experiences across a myriad of subjects. Users can also curate a collection on their end.
As a classicists, one of my favorites is “Greek Drama and the National Theatre.” You can watch the evolution of performance, see examples, read scripts, enjoy in a 3D space, and more! Another great feature is that you can choose the language in which it displays. If you are teaching a French class, for example, you can have them explore the Louis XIV exhibit at Versailles in French rather than English!
There are many potential applications for this repository and the curation features in History, Art History, Language Studies, and more!
