In this special edition of the EuroClio newsletter, we are proud to present the new Historiana functionalities that have been created in the Opening Up Historiana project. In this project, EuroClio worked for almost two years with Webtic, the Institute for the Study of Totalitarian Regimes, the Museum of Slavonia, and Stockholmskällan to make these improvements. The project has been co-funded by the Connecting Europe Facility of the European Commission and made in partnership with Europeana.

The upgraded version of Historiana contains:
1. Three new eLearning tools
2. Possibility to review students’ answers
3. Partner pages
New eLearning Tools
In the Opening Up Historiana project, we have made three new tools, called "building blocks", that educators can use to create eLearning Activities. They can do this by dragging and dropping building blocks in the order of their choice using an eActivity Builder. Each building block is designed to support students to think historically and critically by interacting with historical sources.

Possibility to review students' answers
In another much anticipated upgrade, educators who have shared their eLearning Activities with their students can now also review their answers directly in our eLearning environment. Using a dropdown menu, teachers can navigate their students’ answers, including the activities that haven't yet been finalised by students. 

Partners Pages  
Finally, a new feature allows any organisation making educational sources for history and/or citizenship educators to publish their own eLearning Activities and Source Collections. Interested in creating your own partner page? Register here for our free webinar on July 9th.
Did you encounter any challenges in providing interactive and engaging lessons to your students while in lockdown? Have you been following the past updates of Historiana? Or did you perhaps follow the online course on online teaching, and are looking for other tools to make your lessons motivating for students?

Then, join our upcoming series of online workshops on “Creating eLearning activities on Historiana”, which will take place at the end of the summer!

We want to design a professional development opportunity that fits your needs and expectations. For this reason, we have set up a short survey where you can tell us which format and focus you will prefer the workshops to have. Do you prefer live lessons or a recorded course? Do you want us to focus on skills or on the new functionalities?

Our latest Historiana blog posts
The Historiana blog posts are an ongoing series from EuroClio providing teachers with ideas and practical resources for teaching a range of topics in their classrooms. Each blog post explores a source collection, and its associated eLearning activity to highlight the aims and the teaching outcomes. In addition to the blog posts, you can find teaching strategies and tools on the labs.historiana website.
