  14. Aesop's Fables    (Write a comparison paragraph)  Since 1994 Professor Copper Giloth has assigned her students in Art 271, Introduction to Computing in the Fine Arts, the task of illustrating the traditional Aesop's fables along side their own retellings of the fables in a modern setting. This collection gathers together artwork from several semesters.Over the years the Web has developed to allow for more action and interactivity. In the earlier versions, the stories are illustrated with still images set in simple HTML pages. More recently, students have been working with Macromedia Flash to develop their stories as animations, some with sound and interactivity.
