WORLD HISTORY DOCUMENTS
CONCEPT: A collection of 350 important documents from world history all in one handy app.
DELIVERY: the range of content here is vast and that is the main selling point. To have access to everything from the Bible and the Quran to the American Bills of Rights and Churchill's speeches as primary historical sources is brilliant for historians. Just think how heavy the equivalent set of books would be!
The articles can be searched but are also handily categorised into eras as well as geographical origin. Each article us accompanied by a short explanation of why it is relevant and any article can be added to a favourites tab for easy access. There is also a set of 19 audio and video clips of some famous speeches from historical works leaders of the last century.
LIMITATIONS: It would have been nice to be able to annotate the documents within the app and then export the annotated versions.
CONCLUSION: A huge catalogue of documents compiled in one neat, app-shaped package. Essential for the modern history teacher. 4/5
