The Perseids platform allows students and scholars to collaborate on digital editions and annotations in an integrated online environment. After successfully completing a first phase of development, Perseids is now poised to support the elaboration of a new undergraduate curriculum in the Humanities in the US and abroad. The cornerstone of this initiative is the integration of teaching and research in the Humanities classroom, emulating the way students participate in research teams in the natural sciences. In order to reach this objective, we plan to tackle four main areas:
1) Collaboration, sharing, and reuse
2) Assessment methods
3) Data ownership and quality control
4) Complex annotation and publication workflows
