SmARThistory. (Dr. Beth Harris and Dr. Steven Zucker)
SmARThistory is a free multi-media web-book designed as a dynamic enhancement (or even substitute) for the traditional art history textbook. In 2005 authors began by creating a blog featuring free audio guides in the form of podcasts for use in The Museum of Modern Art and the Metropolitan Museum of Art. Authors decided to create a multi-media survey of art history from these pod-casts which include audio and video about works of art found in standard art history surveys.  They are organized stylistically and chronologically, with some added text and still images.
