Humans have lived in Africa for longer than anywhere else in the world. “In and Beyond Africa” is a new online eLearning tool that explores how Homo sapiens evolved in East Africa and across the globe.
The interactive allows learners to explore migration patterns that influenced genomic diversity today through information spots on a timeline, animations and eLearning games.
There are five learning games inside of the interactive:
Test Your Tool-Making Skills
What Controls Variation in Human Skin Color?
First Farmers and the Origins of Domestication
Frozen Story: Otzi the Iceman
The Deep Future
“In and Beyond Africa” is designed to be used at home or in the classroom. The interactive increases awareness of how Homo sapiens populated the earth.
