The Veteran’s History Project was launched fifteen years ago, long before widespread use of smartphones and networked communication. These new tools have dramatically the reduced barriers to collecting and sharing oral histories and related materials. The outdated VHP interface, including a static website, firewalls that prevent document and video uploads, technology (e.g., compact discs) that is no longer in use, and cumbersome logging and tagging requirements have hampered teacher and student engagement.
Now, with the VHPapp, your interview can be recorded and tagged with your smart phone!
This app was developed in cooperation Travis Bickford, Thomas Wittrup and Dylan Fam.
