3D Basecamp 2014: Teaching Ancient History with SketchUp, Matthew Nichols

Dr Matthew Nicholls is an ancient historian at the University of Reading, England. He has used SketchUp (and Cinema 4D) to build an enormous digital model of ancient Rome, which he uses for teaching and has licensed for broadcast and print publication. He now teaches a class called ‘Digital Silchester’ whose students use SketchUp to make models of a nearby Romano-British town—something highly unusual within a UK humanities degree, and recognized by national education awards. This talk introduces both projects, and shows how digital modeling is enhancing teaching and learning about the ancient world.
