Remote SAGES Class Uses Minecraft

The second half of Gabrielle Parkin’s Medieval Robots SAGES course usually involves the construction of replicas of devices seen in medieval texts, using resources such as think[box].

Teaching the course remotely made that impossible. It occurred to Dr Parkin that online games allowed people to meet up virtually, and to build things collaboratively, and so she began hosting the seminar in Minecraft. The results can be seen in this report in The Daily.
