This project was inspired by the wonderful artwork around the Hotel Captain Cook in Anchorage, Alaska, thinking about potential adventures of sailing aboard a tall ship, and the history of Alaska. Exploring and curating this topics was interesting for our team and we learned a great deal about a range of related subjects: Captain Cook, his voyages and accomplishments; navigation; native cultures; birds and mammals; history; dancing and more. It is through the process of research and processing information that highlights the value of the curation process as an avenue for enduring understanding of a topic.
This project was a collaborative effort between UAF eLearning Design Team members. If you have questions about the project details, please contact us:
