Subject: Expanding the University's Shakespeare Electronic Archive
[Editor's Note: My wife passed this along to me yesterday.
Congratulations to Peter Donaldson and his associates at MIT. I also
encourage anyone visiting the Folger Library to take a test run of the
Shakespeare Electronic Archive. -Hardy]
From SCIENCE:"Software giant Microsoft Corp. and the Massachusetts
Institute of Technology (MIT) last week announced a $25 million
agreement to develop ways to use computers in university teaching, for
projects ranging from academic publishing to Web museums....Under the
I-Campus plan, as it's called, Microsoft will allot $25 million over 5
years for research on teaching technologies approved by a panel of MIT
faculty and Microsoft scientists. The first three projects are:
expanding the university's Shakespeare Electronic Archive; teaching
graduate classes simultaneously at MIT and in Singapore over the
Internet2 research network, starting this fall; and helping aeronautics
students and professors collaborate in cyberspace on design projects."
