Mobile Apps

CPHDH specializes in mobile apps that foster digital storytelling. Building upon our award-winning Cleveland Historical website and app, we developed Curatescape, a low-cost, open-source mobile framework for publishing location-based humanities content that is available for licensing. To date more than 30 organizations worldwide have adopted Curatescape.

The Cleveland Regional Oral History Collection consists of nearly 1,000 audio interviews. Students, educators and researchers from throughout Northeast Ohio regularly contribute to the collection, which features a breadth of topics through interviews that cover a broad cross-section of the community. Cleveland Voices showcases highlights of this collection.
