Marooned on a Very Cool Web Project

One of our astute librarians here at DSU recently sent a note out about Chasing Crusoe, a website created by teams of students from the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill and the University of the Andes, in Santiago, Chile. It explores both the novel Robinson Crusoe and the real-life adventure of Alexander Selkirk, along with lots of other material about pirates, marooning, and sea-faring. What these students created seems to be a promising blend of animation, digital storytelling, scholarship, and game creation. Check it out in English or en Espanol.
