Teaching Examples

Two multimedia packages: A marathon and a neighborhood

Here are a couple of unusual multimedia examples to tide you over the weekend:

A Quick Look at the Los Angeles Marathon

Be sure to look at this one soon, because the L.A. Times has a nasty habit of taking their multimedia offline or changing the URL — and then you’ll never find it again. It struck me as a little silly at first, but then I decided I really liked it. The best part is the topographic animation BELOW the main animation — make sure you scroll to get that on your screen as you make the little man run. Not that it would be anything by itself, but combined with the large map, it’s quite nifty. (Via Melissa Worden.)

Gods of Chinatown

This has some interface issues, but I like the idea — and I love the drag-and-slide person who’s always wearing something fun. I always appreciate it when I get to do more than just click a button. Isabel Chang, the Flash artist, has done some nice multimedia work for P.O.V. in the past. The project comes via New York’s Tenement Museum, which also gave us the still awesome Folk Songs for the Five Points a couple of years ago.
