Representing Digital History

My understanding of digital history is best represented by the video below, The World Trade Center Elevator Video.

This video embodies my understanding of digital history for a number of reasons. First, through the use of a public social media platform, YouTube, to share the content. Second, the use of a visual, engaging video to educate viewers on a piece of history, rather than the use of a lengthy, long-winded piece of text written in paper, or even through an online source.

My understanding of digital history is that it not only utilizes a digital platform to convey a piece of history, but it also embraces the evolution of technology and teaches you something through not only its content, but it’s publication, platform and content.
