Benefits of Digital Humanities

  • Integration of qualitative and quantitative approaches - You can present and interlink digitized text, images, and time-based media with maps, timelines, data, and visualizations.
  • Content management and data analysis - You can mine, map and re-organize the resources – whatever you need to uncover trends, themes and key learnings.
  • Quicker access to information through digital access - This means more people can review, see and learn from the project. You are also able to more easily search through the data, combine different data sources, hyperlink to relevant background materials, and more.
  • Enhanced teaching  - Digital Humanities helps students learn by being able to see more, experience more, and collaborate together.
  • Improved collaboration - Digital resources and environments can provide a common plaform for project development and group-sourcing of materials, and facilitate local, regional and global partnerships.
  • Public impact - The projects extend beyond the classroom and make a public impact.  Not only does this help show the value of the study of Humanities, but digital projects can also help inform and engage those outside the university setting.
