Some of the most famous plays by William Shakespeare are now available in CD-ROM form providing a modern, innovative and interactive learning environment.
The full text appears on the CD, as well as pop-up, plain English explanations and annotations for the notoriously difficult vocabulary. Each scene comes with a plain English synopsis and an annotation facility where students can include and store their own notes. Passages from the scenes can also be copied for later use in essays. The search function allows students not only to locate key words but also to follow a theme or image through the text.
Background essays on the Elizabethan era and The Globe Theatre are another feature of the interactive text along with academic commentaries and several essay-writing guides.
The suggested study activities allow students to pursue a range of approaches to the study of the text and simple interactive graphics of the Globe Theatre and historical time line enable a broader student perspective to be achieved of the time and place.
