The Case for Online Art History Resources
The reality is that the pandemic has pushed many teachers and professors to teach online. This may be the time to start using an online syllabus, and to use more web resources. The reasons:
- Students are more comfortable learning online
- The quality of online resources has vastly improved
- Online Resources allow more topics that are beyond the standard, male/Western-driven canon
- Low cost solution – no more expensive textbooks
- Some textbooks are terribly outdated and not fit for online learning
We Want to help!
The Art Story has been building resources online for 12 years. We know that switching resources for a course is a tremendous undertaking and we are here to help. It is a process and needs to be thought through - we are not blind to the advantages textbooks offer too.
We will work with you to put together your own syllabus. And you have the option of having a standard PDF/print-out syllabus, or use an online version such as: Course Syllabus: History of Western Art
Note: We work hard to build the most quality information on The Art Story, and we update and correct our content diligently. But of course, there are many excellent resources online that engage students. By all means, we welcome using The Art Story in conjunction with other resources, such as the Khan Academy.
