Occidental College’s Global Crossroads is a custom designed web application and two-story media installation that allows students and faculty to create and display multimedia projects. The design of the web app is oriented toward iterative, open research process, the construction of academic argumentation, and interactive sharing and annotation of content resources, such as quotes, images, data, and video. In this project demo, we offer an overview of the Global Crossroads system design, the process of developing a custom platform and media wall installation in collaboration with faculty, designers, architects, and administrators, and examples of its use within courses.
