“The challenge was to create a site that was immersive in experience, allowing the user to focus on the complex history of Pakistan and the issues facing the country.”

MediaStorm, Designers, Crisis Guide: Pakistan

Crisis Guide: Pakistan is one of nearly a dozen “crisis guides” put out by the Council on Foreign Relations (CFR). Each covers a conflict hot spot or global issue. Like many of the CFR crisis guides, Crisis Guide: Pakistan is multimedia rich, combining video, text, and graphics into a format that manages to be both didactic and interactive. The guide is divided into thematic chapters that users can explore in any order. Interactive timelines and maps supplement more traditional filmed documentary content. Links to additional sources and primary documents serve as a jumping off point for further research. As a unit, the CFR crisis guides suggest some of the ways that textbooks and other educational material may evolve in the digital era.
