The Digital Learning and Development Environment (DLDE) is a research and development project aimed at fostering greater use of Digital Collections@WSU. The DLDE is a website ( providing tools to intergrate images into classroom instruction and instructional guides to the Virtual Motor City, Digital Dress, and other collections. Portfolios of images and their metadata can be downloaded into templates for creating digital learning objects for presentations and research papers, and a teaching and learning arhive provides links to local and national resources.

The DLDE is supported by a Digital Humanities II Start-Up Grant from the National Endowment for the Humanities.

For further information, read the White Paper.
