Judges' Comments

  • a wonderfully eclectic use of the web and its capacity for interaction and knowledge/understanding building
  • a very unique site... one of the few I've seen where they're using wikis. It is easy to use, robust , and has an inmpressive list of academic collaborators behind the site.
  • they made extra efforts in different areas that no others had: different languages, several ways to get interaction: feedback, interactive and contributions.
  • could be used in many interdisciplinary projects in any pluralistic curriculum and educational setting for different age groups
