Visualizing the Common Core Literature was an educational technology designed to engage high school students in digital humanities, or the exploration of ideas, themes and concepts through digital visualization tools.
Content from books published prior to 1924 is generally available off-copyright. VisualCCL used these books as datasets. This made it easy to quantify of explore the ebb and flow of themes and ideas, or the evolution of characters.
This was one of my favorite products! It brought together fantastic datasets, including research datasets, to achieve something really cool. It was used experimentally with humanities classrooms but taken out of circulation with the closure of Public Learning Media Laboratory.
