Digital History Projects

Digital history is an important part of public history work. As an educator, Elyssa focuses her digital history work as a project director. She trains students, guides their work, acts as an editor, and updates and maintains the projects.

Nodaway County
Digital History Project

The Nodaway County Digital History Project was launched in 2012 and is dedicated to documenting and making public the history of Nodaway County.

​This is a collaborative project with the Nodaway County Historical Society in Maryville (Missouri). Under the direction of Elyssa Ford, Ph.D., the websites, oral histories, lesson plans, and other project components have been designed by community partners, volunteers, and undergraduate students at Northwest Missouri State University.

The resources made public as a part of this project allow students, educators, researchers, and community residents to learn more about Nodaway County in northwestern Missouri.

Northwest Coronavirus Stories

Working collaboratively with colleagues at Northwest Missouri State University, I was part of a team that created a digital project to collect stories from northwestern Missouri, with a focus on the university, about COVID-19. Over a two year period, this project gathered more than 400 entries.
