About us

 

The Virtual HistorianTM is a web-based educational program for teaching and learning Canadian history, in both official languages, developed by a scholarly team at the Faculty of Education, the University of Ottawa. Designed with advanced technology in computer programming and reality-like imaging, the Virtual HistorianTM places learners in the virtual environment of authentic historical investigations of key events and issues in Canadian history, such as the Halifax Explosion (1917), the Person's Case (1929), The Dieppe Raid (1942), and the October Crisis (1970).

 

The Virtual HistorianTM is financed in part by the Canadian Funds for Innovation (CFI) and supported by the Virtual History Lab (VH Lab) of the University of Ottawa. We also wish to thank our technological partner Idéeclic inc. To register or receive information on the Virtual HistorianTM , please contact the Virtual Historian Team.
