Annotated Images in Art History


Alan Levine said it clearly. He too wonders why teachers do not use flickr annotated images with class assignments.

* Hotspots. Hotspots. Annotated freaking hotspots. I cannot believe that not more teachers have dove into the flickr notes feature. After it being more than a year old, I still find Beth Harris’s Art History example as my only educational thing that uses this! What discipline does not have a use for a tool to created annotated images? And with links one can embed, think about the range of non-linear stories one can weave across images?

Sybilla added other examples by an archeologist in Comments to Alan’s post.

What uses have you seen?
