Eighteenth Century Streaming Video - ColonialWilliamsburg.com

Guest Author - Diane Cipollo

I was surfing the web today and found a website that really impressed me with its combination of text, graphics and streaming video. The Colonial Williamsburg website is a part of the Colonial WilliamsburgR living history museum which is in Williamsburg, Virginia. This living history museum is a reenactment of life as it was in eighteenth century America. In a setting of restored buildings, period furnishing and costumed guides a visit to Colonial Williamsburg is like walking back into living history.

The Colonial Williamsburg website has some features that make the website as impressive a historical experience as the museum itself. One of these features is the use of streaming video in the Christmas In Colonial Williamsburg section. Here you will be able to view QuickTimeTM video clips of the Christmas activities that the Colonial Williamsburg museum has become so well known for. A great number of people visit the museum to enjoy the scheduled Christmas activities and these QuickTime videos capture some of the excitement during the holiday.

Another example of the use of online streaming video is the video demonstrations offered in the Colonial Williamsburg Marketplace section. These demos show step-by-step instructions for making some of the historical Christmas decorations. After viewing the demos you can purchase the materials needed to make each project from the Marketplace. And you can also download the QuickTime demo to your computer. This is a good example of the use of streaming video as an online marketing tool.

The third and most impressive is the Colonial Williamsburg Electronic Field Trips. The museum has created a learning program that begins with a TV Broadcasted dramatization of a historical event. Following the broadcast the students of participating schools can visit the accompanying internet site that has various multimedia and interactive activities. The students can even send an email to a historical figure from the broadcast and receive a reply from that historical person. Email in the eighteenth century?
