ACLS Fellows release The Tempest for iPad. Elliott Visconsi (University of Notre Dame) and Katherine Rowe (Bryn Mawr) are delighted to announce the public launch of Shakespeare’s The Tempest for iPad.
Download via iTunes:
Much more than a digital book, The Tempest for iPad is aimed at all readers – students, scholars, performers, Shakespeare fans – and is designed for social reading, authoring, and collaboration.
- Learn from short expert commentaries provided by the world’s leading Shakespeare scholars, artists and teachers.
- Listen to a full-length scrolling audio performance from the noted company Actors From the London Stage. Additional audio takes provide alternative performances of key passages.
- Share notes immediately to a Facebook discussion group.
- Publish commentaries within the app, and send that content to the iPads of students, friends, or colleagues.
- Create a custom play text. Readers choose key passages, annotate them, and share with friends and colleagues worldwide.
- Enjoy illustrations, podcasts and videos from The Folger Shakespeare Library’s collection.
- Customize the content to suit all backgrounds.
From the classroom to the theater, Luminary’s The Tempest for iPad creates a dynamic and collaborative experience for all readers.
Designed by Visconsi and Rowe to bring a worldwide audience together around Shakespeare’s plays, The Tempest for iPad was developed at the Center for Research Computing at the University of Notre Dame.
