Successful SELF bid

A proposed collaborative project between Open Virtual Worlds in Computer Science, Special Collections and Art History called Flexible Access to Medieval Books (FAB) has been successful in this year’s SELF funding.

The goal of this project is to utilise 21st century technology to enable learners to participate in history and thereby to extend the boundaries of experiential learning.

The project will draw upon the scholarship which produced the “St Andrews Treasures”, the historical vision which underpins the recreation of St Andrews Cathedral and technical expertise in computing science to develop resources that will enrich the learning experience of students studying history, art history and divinity at St Andrews and wider afield.
