Storyline

With James Earl Jones as narrator and Joe Morton as storyteller, these interactive titles span Europe and the Americas from the early Renaissance to the 20th Century from five different cultural perspectives -- White/European, Black/African, Hispanic/Latino, Asian and Native American. The largest multimedia project ever made, "Columbus" is on permanent display at the Library of Congress, National Demonstration Laboratories for new media and technology. Using an IBM CDROM drive, a Pioneer LaserDisc Player and an advanced concept engine, "Columbus" connects 4400 scenes, 3500 concepts, 5 hours of video, 180 hours of self-navigable imagery and over 900,000 soft links on 3 videodiscs and 1 computer optical disc. It runs on an IBM PS/2 computer that IBM intended to sell as a package to school districts for use in history instruction. Written by Jenny Cool
