Professor to Display Electronic History Course

KNOXVILLE — A history professor who has used electronic technology to design a multimedia course on world history will demonstrate it Nov. 4 at the University of Tennessee-Knoxville.

Dr. Carolyn Karr of Marshall University will present “The Twentieth Century World” at 3:30 p.m. in 223 University Center.

The freshman-level course includes embedded videos, graphics and audio files of speeches by prominent historical figures. It also includes interactive computer simulations that require students to make decisions about scenarios involving World War I, the decision to drop the atomic bomb and other world crises.

UT President J. Wade Gilley will introduce Karr and discuss Marshall University’s innovative technology-based teaching and learning plan.
