Digital revitalization and content upgrades for World History Matters, a free-to-use educational web resource for teaching world history.

World History Commons, a Level III grant, will provide an essential digital resource for teaching and research in world and global history, reviving and expanding World History Matters, the award-winning, NEH-funded collection of world history websites now almost twenty years old. Using robust, modular, and extendable open-source software, this Open Educational Resource (OER) will preserve and enhance widely-used resources while introducing new humanities scholarship and pedagogy. World History Commons represents a ground-breaking collaboration between the Roy Rosenzweig Center for History and New Media at George Mason University, the World History Association, and Monash University (Australia) which runs one of the largest world history programs in the southern hemisphere. World History Commons will provide a free, centralized, digital, world history platform with high quality, peer-reviewed resources for high school and higher education students, teachers, and scholars.
