[Excerpt]: "This site contains hundreds of visual aids (illustrations) that can be used to support instructional tasks such as describing objects and people (i.e., teaching vocabulary) or describing entire events and situations.
The illustrations were created as part of the Visuals for Developing Communication Skills in Foreign Language Classes project, initated by Paul Toth, former Director of the Less-Commonly-Taught Languages Center. It was funded by the Provost through the Advisory Council on Instructional Excellence (ACIE) as part of the Innovation in Education Awards program.
All of the illustrations were drawn by Alec Sarkas from the Center for Instructional Development & Distance Education (CIDDE).
We also offer an another method for viewing these images via Bungee View, a visualization tool developed at Carnegie Mellon University to support casual users gaining an understanding on an image collection as a whole and in finding patterns in such collections."
