Inhalt:Ancient Rome in many ways can be seen as the start of "Western civilization" and as such is the starting point of Historia Universalis digital library. The content is organized as a series of timelines that link series of events that shaped the development and demise of the Rome. For every event that has accompanying data and/or multimedia, that data is arranged into a separate layer and available to the user with a single click directly from the event itself. Some events, related to the curriculum, have integrated questions that are aimed to enhance the learning process. The title is accessible as online (web) content, but has fully implemented SCORM interface and can be included as a content module into any SCORM compatible LMS. The content is also smartboard compatible, with integrated navigation panel. Users can move trough time and see the events shown on the map at the location where they happened when they happened. By combining timelines of interest user can explore and compare events in the sequence in which they occurred and observe relations both in space and in time. The data is granulated, where one event can be shown on one timeline and simultaneously have its own timeline showing the details of that event as they occurred. For example, in "Founding of Rome" is the legend how the geese saved the city from Gaelic attack given as a single event, but this legend exists also as a timeline on its own and can be examined in detail. This enables users to get the overview of the most important events and at the same time has capability to do full research of topics of interest. Along with the events from selected timelines, the map of the world changes over time to reflect social and political changes in a given period. The most detailed view is in the core area of interest, Mediterranean, but all major civilizations of that time are shown to show both local and global influences on the events.
