Film & Sound Online - New Case Studies


Three new Film & Sound Online case studies have been added to the learning materials area of the website. The latest case studies are:

* The Negro Soldier in World War Two
* Classical Music within a Level 3 History course
* Church Architecture in the Middle Ages
This brings the total to ten of these themed guides which have been created by commissioning users within the community.

The Negro Soldier in World War Two was created by Dr. Andrew Dawson from the School of Humanities at University of Greenwich. More detailed information about his case study can be found on the Film & Sound Online site. The call is still open for further case studies: http://www.filmandsound.ac.uk/support/learning/makecasestudies.html
