CSU WorldImages


Faculty from many disciplines are using the images for research assignments, to create course study pages, to include in their lectures, and to create on-line materials. Students are using the image database for study and research, for term papers, and to create collaborative multimedia presentations.

Art and Architectural History faculty use the images to teach the basic survey as well as specialized upper division courses. Images for particular courses can be located by clicking on Art and Architecture Portfolios and going to the specific survey of interest.

Studio Art faculty use the images listed in the Core 2 Dimensional and Core 3 Dimensional portfolios. The portfolios help both students and faculty understand the core concepts used in teaching art.

Students in Visual Literacy and Multimedia Courses are creating elaborate collaborative multimedia presentations. Click here to download a Powerpoint description of a course on Multimedia and Collaborative Learning and click on samples of student and faculty work on the homepage.

Elementary and High School teachers are using the database to design projects relating to the California Educational Standards. See the portfolios with Images for the California Educational Standards.
