About the header image:
The header image for our course site is titled: “Nieuw Amsterdam op t Eylant Manhattans,” and it was created in 1650 by Johannes Blaeu. The artist based his print on a 1648 image of the town of New Amsterdam. This image presents Neiuw Amsterdam as it appeared during the time when Peter Stuyvesant was the Dutch corporate governor of the tip of an island that eventually became lower Manhattan in New York City.
OpenLab is a new, open source digital platform that helps our Learning Community share information, work, calendars, and resources. Each course has one website, but they are all interconnected. Not only can students see what is happening in other classes, perspective students can see what courses look like. Each website has course-specific information and also a semi-public blog so that students can share with the world.
