Project History
The Division of State History Museums collects and preserves artifacts and other historical materials relating to the history and heritage of North Carolina in a local, regional, national, and international context to assist people in understanding how the past influences the present. The Division interprets the state’s history through exhibitions, educational programs, and publications available to the visitor on-site or through distance-learning technologies.

In 1998 the North Carolina Museum of History offered a pilot electronic teacher workshop, The Role of Women in North Carolina History, as a new way to serve educators across the state. Since that time, the museum has developed eight additional online workshops: Stories from the Civil War; American Indians in North Carolina, Past and Present; African American Life and Culture in North Carolina; North Carolina at Home and in Battle during World War II; Antebellum North Carolina; North Carolina Geography; and Brother Can You Spare a Dime? The 1930s in North Carolina as well as this course. Most workshops are offered annually, and new ones continue to be created.

Online workshops are not meant to replace the museum’s traditional programs, but will supplement ongoing programs for students and educators. Using evaluations from this project, the museum will develop other web-based programs for educators.
