    Concept:
    The HWCMweb.org project is a large-scale online interactive encyclopedia reference. This web-based technology is an add-on component to a two-volume book set, The History of the World Christian Movement. The interactive system holds thousands of learning objects including interactive maps, timelines, and audio/visual material. Information can be viewed by region of world, chapter in the book, time in history, or in an alphabetical glossary. The web site is currently being used internationally by history students and professors. In May 2006, the interactive system was presented to a group of international scholars at Harvard University.
