The 3rd edition of Culture, Identity and Digital Content in the 21st Century Workshop follows the digital content topic in relation to learning progress. Culture and Identity are accessible in all media landscape from social media, blogs, movies, newspapers, games, and in learning as digital courses, learning management systems, scientific papers, Moocs, Virtual Reality. The methods of distribution of historical digital content are in constant change and appear new channels, mobile apps, courses or eBooks each day. It is a challenge for content creators to define the best way to bring their info to the users, new tools and technologies are researched and used, and each day on different sites emerge new discussions on historical topics.
Nowadays solutions, both procedural and technical, new trends will be discussed in the framework of this workshop. Submissions should offer scientific arguments and interpretations rather than a showcase of digital projects. We rely that the format of short presentations will provide the chance to make arguments based on ongoing research in larger projects. Professors, researchers, graduate students are encouraged to submit proposals. Presentations will be peer-reviewed and published in the conference volume.
