Digital Asia an online educator resource using augmented versions of contemporary documentary films about China, Korea, and Japan as the foundation for an enhanced learning experience for college and K-12 educational settings. This website contains not only the films available via live-streaming, but also accompanied by free downloadable documents of curriculum materials, accessible film transcripts, background materials about each film, and a clear method to order the full-length films. While the students watch the film, additional information will pop up on the screen. These pop-ups may provide background information, link to a website or give other resources for further learning.
Digital Asia is a project of the Center for East Asian and Pacific Studies and the Asian Educational Media Service at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign supported by the US Department of Education Title VI National Resource Center Grant.
