Final Creative ProjectThe final creative project in Stanford‘scourse on Understanding Einstein byProf. Dr. Larry Randles Lagerstromshall show commitment to the topic innew, creative and different ways…
Wordclouds…Are creative ways to visualize contents nicelyAre important in web publishingAre important in teachingAre important for learning and visualizing stuffThis project visualizes basic facts of Einsteinsmost productive year 1905 and basic conceptsof his research and findings…Different free word cloud generators have beentested and the results are shown here…
