Hypermedia Berlin

Hypermedia Berlin

Hyperspace Berlin is an interactive set of maps, popup information screens containing text, critical essays documenting and analyzing critical people and places, architectural structures, and cultural moments in the history of Berlin.  The earliest map is from 1237 and the latest is from 2003.  Its purpose is to allow the author and others to teach the cultural history of Berlin without a textbook.  Students can view Berlin in any order they want, allowing nonlinear learning patterns of great depth and richness.

I was playing with the site and found myself having a lot of fun tracing the history of particular features, such as Alexander Platz. It might be a wonderful way to introduce students to urban history.

Technical Remarks:

To experience everything, users have to turn off their popup blocker software.
Time spent reviewing site: I spent about an hour viewing the site tutorial and playing around with it.
