Nicole von Germeten

Nicole von Germeten, with co-PIs Chris Lindberg and Meghan Naxer, recently won a research fellowship from E-campus. Their project proposes to examine student motivation levels as they engage with the past through a narrative and character-based video games built into the design of an online course on the topic of “Crime in History.” This new course will include Mexican and Colombian case studies drawn from the five books that Nicole has written using criminal records dating back to the sixteenth century. The funding will mainly go towards collecting photos and videos of the crime scenes, as well as other kinds of visual imagery needed to make the games more engaging.
