Video highlights from the apps (36-minute version)

This montage provides a sampling of some of the video media in the Fort Vancouver Mobile apps. This app is much more than just a video distribution system, but these videos show the variety of content, from expositional segments to new journalism to those intended to prompt the development of interactive narratives.

Now beta testing: Grand Emporium of the West (iPad version)

Our Apple version of the Grand Emporium of the West tablet app (in beta form) was released today in the App Store. So if you have either an Android or an Apple tablet computer, including iPads, you now can try out the app in either format. This app, again, is focused upon mid-19th century history and designed to be used in middle school history classes. We already have a few teachers who are planning to test this in their classes locally. If you, no matter where you are in the world, also want to try, please download the free app, test it, and let us know how we can help you to integrate it into your classroom (and improve it). Contact information and links are on the right-hand side of this blog. Thank you for your interest and support!

The Grand Emporium of the West app is out ...

Just a quick update, we have released the beta version of The Grand Emporium of the West app in the Android Google Play store and are in the process of submitting the app to the Apple market as well. That should take about 10 days or so, and I'll post here when it gets through the process. If you have an Android tablet computer and want to give this a try, please do. And let us know what you think, through the communication channels on this site.
