The School has used two grants to develop a series of animated maps for use in teaching.
These animated maps have been successfully used in two first level courses - History of Christianity as a World Religion 1a and 1b.
The maps created for History of Christianity as a World Religion 1a were funded by the University of Edinburgh Principals Elearning Fund.
The maps created for History of Christianity as a World Religion 1b by The Higher Education Academy (Philosophy and Religious Studies Subject area).
