|Inhalt:||The life of Nikola Tesla is intriguing for itself, as both his inventions
and his personal life attracted very much attention even during his
lifetime. His most significant discovery was way of using alternate
current (AC) for distribution of electricity, and that is directly
connected to the "war" between Thomas Edison and Tesla.
The content is divided into two timelines. The first timeline consists
of the most important events in Tesla´s life, such as his birth,
education and moving. All events consist of a short title, description
and almost all include multimedia, which show him and his
surrounding (people and cities). The second timeline consists of all
Tesla´s patents which were registered in USA, Canada and UK.
Every patent is shown as an event, showing the name and number
of the patent with the addition of multimedia which show original
schemes and front pages of the patent application. Some events
also include videos. Users cane freely pan and zoom control over
both map and time, with one-click access to multimedia related to
the event shown.
The goal of the title is that it can be used by teachers who teach
relevant subjects that are connected to Tesla´s work and students
who want to learn about him in a visual and comprehensive manner.
It can be used as material for preparation for a class or it can be
shown and moved event by event during the class or material for
summarization of data which were presented in the class. It is for
now available in Croatian and English language.
