“Engage!” was developed by an international team of digital humanists and archivists from Europe and the United States. From October to December 2019, the game structure and layout were revised by MA student Isabelle Reiß of Johann Gutenberg University in Mainz (Germany). This website now offers the game for download and provides additional resources free of charge. Please read our data protection and licensing information.

DH teaching material
open-source, high quality, multilingual teaching materials for the digital arts and humanities

“Engage!” is affiliated with the open source, multilingual platform #dariahTeach that encourages researchers in the humanities and cultural professionals to explore new (digital) tools and methods.

#dariahTeach was launched on 23 March 2017 with beta content and undergoes careful peer-review.

You may want to follow #dariahTeach on Twitter or YouTube to learn more about “engaged research” in practice and to hear about up-coming tutorials, online courses and face-to-face workshops:
