Using Digital Mappa (DM) in the Classroom
The Schoenberg Institute for Manuscript Studies at Penn hosts an installation of Digital Mappa (DM). As described on the project website (https://www.digitalmappa.org/), DM is "an open-source digital humanities platform for open-access workspaces, projects and publications."
You can use it to make digital editions and other types of projects that link together images, texts, and annotations. In addition to edition projects, DM can also be used for student projects in a classroom environments.
