Digital humanities takes an event or subject, typically in history, and presents it to the world via the internet.  A wide range of resources, from primary documents to interactive videos, are made accessible in a way they never before have been to anyone interested.  Many times the site provides the ability for individuals to share their own stories related to the subject in a meaningful way.  Because these projects aim to educate people about lesser known events, they often provide teaching materials to aid in the dissemination of knowledge.  The layout of these sites typically includes tabs and subcategories that enable users to better navigate the collection and various other resources; additionally, search bars aid in the finding of information that specifically interests the user.  These projects target their audiences carefully and, consequently, provide appropriate language options to increase accessibility.
