Ireland Under Siege – the launch video – how it was made

There was a requirement for a short countdown and then a finale with the IUS logo. Sieges bring to mind cannon fire, musket fire and a battle scene. The sounds of cannon, musket, sword and human shouts and screams would be needed. The video – I picket an image of Limerick city from 1633 as the starting point. The endpoint was always going to be the IUS logo. The movie would show the.. Read More

News and comments from the CESI conference

Presentation here:  http://prezi.com/q6c3h2ev3f_-/history-app/ The conference participants (mainly school teachers) were very interested in mobile phone apps for education. They were also interested in augmented reality and its application to a variety of subjects. There was concern about the pedagogy of apps and the curriculum. Observations on the app itself suggest that there should be an audio description of each POI. GPS function does not work well in built-up areas. To learn more about.. Read More

Ireland Under Seige Map

View Ireland Under Siege in a larger map This is an interactive map of the locations of the various seiges which took place in seventeenth century Ireland. Each blue placemark indicates a point of interest, clicking on a placemark will cause a short description of the landmark and what part it played in seige warfare to pop up. You can also zoom in to take a closer look at these points of interest.

Sieges Timeline

Application Title

The graphic designer wants to know what the project title is to go into the logo.  Short and sweet would probably work best. What’s your opinion?

Immersive Learning in History: An Augmented Reality Mobile Phone Application
