Quebec 400 goes digital

The Beaver magazine is launching it's special double issue celebrating the 400th anniversary of Quebec. As a special feature it also marks the first podcasts that we have noted in the magazine and suggested visiting our Website.

If you visit you can listen to two interviews. Marianna O'Gallagher is the author of Children of the Famine and Denys Delâge is the author of Allies Malgre Eux, both articles in the special edition. The magazine is also being published in both French and English.

Check out the previous post for all the info on creating podcasts.

I've been working on putting together a digital history newsletter and I'm also looking for ways to facilitate working with teachers online. I have an eluminate v-room, I'm working on using Skype more, and I've also just come across Meebo that the University of Winnipeg library is using.

If you have a question about Digital History or an idea for a project give me a shout. It's a nice easy chatting feature that doesn't require a new user to sign in. It was also very easy to embed on the side of the page.
