Smart History: Google Art Project & Khan Academy - YouTube

Smart History: Google Art Project & Khan Academy - YouTube | technologies | Scoop.it
Smarthistory.khanacademy.org is thrilled to be part of the expanded Google Art Project. See the education section there for more: http://www.googleartproject...
John Dalziel's insight:

I've already posted about Google’s Art Project and the Khan Academy, now, from the combined power of their learning resources comes this collection of video introductions to over 100 important paintings.
Ranging from between two to nine minutes and covering works of art created in eras from 575 B.C.E to the Second World War, these brief but intellectually dense and visually rich lessons bear the label of Smarthistory, “a multimedia web-book about art and art history” that merged with Khan Academy in 2011.
Smarthistory’s videos manage to reveal a great deal of emotional, technical, and historical knowledge on these and many other paintings and is an excellent resource for Art History and other Learners.
