Odyssey Online is a collaborative web site developed by the Michael
C. Carlos Museum and the Memorial Art Gallery. The site uses objects
from both museums' collections as a focus for object-centered learning
on the web and is intended to serve as a curriculum resource for 6th-grade
social studies students and teachers in New York, Georgia, and beyond.
Odyssey features text and hypertext-linked still images; audio; interactive
inquiry experiences such as games, puzzles, and quizzes; links to other
web sites; bibliography and other educational resources for students;
and resources for teachers.
