History. REVEL offers an immersive learning experience that engages students deeply in history, while giving them the flexibility to learn their way.


Instead of just reading about the past, REVEL empowers students to actively participate in the exploration of history. Media interactives integrated directly within the authors’ narrative enable students to delve further into key events without breaking stride. For example, REVEL’s interactive maps highlighting territorial advancement in mid-19th-century America coupled with Thomas Corwin’s 1847 piece Against the Mexican War help students make connections between western advancement and the Mexican War.

For example, if you used a small portion of a copyrighted work for nonprofit educational purposes without any harmful intention your case may qualify as fair use. However, weighing the fair use factors is often quite subjective . The difficulty in claiming fair use is that there is no way to guarantee that your use will qualify as fair.
