Developed to show the potential use of broadband cable in the classroom, this demonstration project from the Cable in the Classroom group details how the words of the immortal bard have been transformed and interpreted by a host of different individuals. After a brief multimedia introduction, viewers can go on to two sections: "Pen to Print" or "Stage to Screen." The "Pen to Print" section contains a number of fun and educating areas, including Shakespeare's Language, Altered Texts, and The Writing Process. In Shakespeare's Language, visitors can listen to hear some of the now-common expressions (such as "into thin air") coined by him. Equally revealing is the ability to learn about how proof-readers and correctors transformed almost all of Shakespeare's works. The "Stage to Screen" area is also quite fine, as viewers can watch two different interpretations of Hamlet's legendary soliloquy. The screen version is from 2000 and is performed by Campbell Scott, and the stage version is performed by the masterful Richard Burton, under the direction of Sir John Geilgud. All in all, the site is a nice example of how this technology may be used in the classroom.
