Online learning resources

Growing convergence between libraries, museums and archives working together to improve access to digital information resulted in the ELISE project supported by the European Commission.

Knowledge Media Design led a consortium of 9 partners from the UK, Netherlands, Ireland and Belgium to create an interconnected system of image banks in libraries and museums in Europe which resulted in some 40,000 digitised images and videos searchable on-line.

These databases include lantern slides, glass plates, museum objects, furniture, paintings, microscopic preparations, photographs, newspapers, maps and videos.

At the national level, the LearningZone team is working with the National Railway Museum in York, local museums and record offices in Leicester, Leicestershire, Rutland, Trafford and South Gloucestershire to develop database driven learning resource web sites covering the history of railways, canals and aviation in the UK.

These websites will provide public access to a unique archive of historical information, in many cases for the first time ever.

Another product is a time-line research resource about the Coin Street area of Waterloo in London. The CD-based programme enables students to consider the historical development of the area from a number of different points of view - from the planners of the day to the man on the street and the economic realities of the time, while accessing a wealth of images and other historical data.
