Subject: The Tempest App for iPad
This may be of interest to you as medievalists and early modernists or your students. Over the past months I have been working with colleagues at Notre Dame and elsewhere on a collaborative, interactive digital Shakespeare edition. Our first play is The Tempest. This is a “textbook” app for iPad offering dynamic, multilingual “lecture streams” (annotations by specialists), student-instructor work space, digital videos of performances of the play, audio clips of renowned actors reciting lines from the play, paintings and images about the play, and more. There are many other features not available in a regular print edition.
We are now live in Apple iTune Store and are launching the app at the Shakespeare Association for America annual conference in Boston today. The website is located at:
