World History: Great Resources

What's the difference between early Christian and Byzantine art.  You can find out by watching the ten minute clip on the Education Portal. After you watch it, you can take a short quiz.

The Byzantine Empire is one part of a longer course on Western Civ with sixteen units from Prehistory to the Reformation and Elizabethan England.  For example, the unit on the Early Middle Ages has clips and quizzes on the following:
  • Feudalism: Charlemagne and the Holy Roman Empire, 
  • Charlemagne's Holy Roman Empire and the Divine Right to Rule,
  •  Monasticism from St. Benedict to Cluny Monasticism From St. Benedict To Cluny, 
  • Carolingian Art: History, Style & Characteristics
The clips are all less than ten minutes and they are outstanding.

Thanks to David Walp who tweeted the link to this excellent site.
