Subject: Shakespeare: Subject to Change
"Shakespeare: Subject to Change" (http://www.ciconline.org/broadband) is
a multimedia online exploration of variations in Shakespeare. The site
explores the printing and editing process and variations in
performances. Much of the site explores variations in Hamlet and
there's even a section where individuals or classes could send in their
own versions of Hamlet's "To be..." speech.
The project was created by Cable in the Classroom to show the power of
broadband in learning. Peggy O'Brien, former head of Education at the
Folger and editor of all three volumes of "Shakespeare Set Free" is the
Executive Director of Cable in the Classroom. I was a consultant to the
project, and key resources were secured through agreements with The
Folger Shakespeare Library and The Huntington Library.
To truly take advantage this experience, be sure you're on a high-speed
connection to the Internet and turn up your speakers on your computer.
