  2. 2. Teaching with Monasterium in Europe Icarus Didactics Group (since 2011) • aims at stimulating teaching with Monasterium and – more recently – with digital technologies in general and at exchanging and disseminating these experiences Courses took place in • Austria • France • Germany • Spain • Italy Digital Technologies E-Learning Monasterium and MOM-CA
  3. 3. Teaching with Monasterium in Naples Courses in Diplomatics, Palaeography and Digital Resources for Humanities (since 2009/2010) • Master Degree in History • Master Degree in Administration of the Cultural Heritage • Master (postgraduate) in Library and Archival Sciences • PhD in History / Information and Library Sciences
  4. 4. Monasterium in teaching: different uses for different users (I) … Platform MOM-CA: • Online repository of historical sources, different types of documents and documentary scripts • For archivists: a digital archive
  5. 5. Monasterium in teaching: different uses for different users (II) … Editor EditMOM: • For diplomatists: Analysis of external and internal features of a charter and markup • For palaeographers: Image tool for script analysis
  6. 6. … but common educational goals  Understand a virtual digital archive  Apply the methods of traditional diplomatic analysis using Monasterium.Net and the XML editor of MOM- CA, Edit-MOM  Apply the methods of traditional palaeographic analysis using the Monasterium.Net Images Tools  Investigate the transformations set off by new tools in particular
  7. 7. Different users – different learning behaviours, favourite features and opinions Younger students curiosity and interest in using New Technologies search feature of Monasterium positive: Livens up “dead” disciplines, more accessible Graduates a certain resistance to using New Technologies charter description feature negative: Loss of the archival context of the sources
  8. 8. On the one hand: advantages of Monasterium … • simple and intuitive • perfect for putting theory into action (“learning by doing”) • flexible 1. computer lab: group activity and community-centered learning 2. at distance: individual work on a charter
  9. 9. … and on the other hand: disadvantages • Students are not able to work on the same charter (limited community experience) • Students have no possibility to interact on the platform (limited exchange) • Teacher: Limited evaluation of learning results on MOM-CA
  10. 10. What did we change in consequence? (I) To improve social learning and to get evaluation tools: • Collaboration with pedagogues • Combination of Monasterium with an e-learning platform (Moodle) and Social Media (FB Group)
  11. 11. What did we change in consequence? (II) To abolish decontextualization: • Historical and archival framework of the charters (visits to original production site and conservation sites) and only then computer lab working on MOM-CA
  12. 12. … and how did Monasterium.Net change? Due to students’ suggestions, proposals of the Didactics Group and collaboration with MOM-CA Technical Group: • Image tools and their integration with the editor • New mark-ups: tag for formula • Improvement of Italian translation (usability)
  13. 13. Future prospects  To involve students in research projects with Monasterium.net, i.e. a digital edition  Our future in co:op: educational activities with Monasterium to further relations between archives, universities and the public
