Digital Humanities 150 – Pirates of the Mediterranean through Text Analysis

Digital Humanities 150 is designed and created by Prof. Ashley Sanders.

Prof. Sanders uses text analysis to study the fascinating history of Pirates of the Mediterranean in DH150. In this showcase, Prof. Sanders shared how she used Bruin Learn Modules and Pages to structure the course. She also created and implemented Bruin Learn’s Rubric tool to speed-up grading and discussed why a rubric is crucial in making expectations transparent to students.

In addition, Prof. Sanders used Leganto, the UCLA Library’s Course Reading List integration in Bruin Learn. Leganto allows instructors to discover, create, and maintain course e-reserve and reading lists, which helps and supports students begin their research projects on unfamiliar topics.
