- What We Do -
Educate professionals, students, and life-long learners
We provide training on the use of modern tools in archaeological practice so our students may make the results of their work more relevant, shared and accessible.
Design digital projects that engage with our past
We are up-to-date on technological trends and human-centered design for digital archaeology projects. We provide background research, needs assessment, and design for archaeological projects and firms.
- Who We Are -
We envision a world where human history is accessible to everybody.
We nurture new generations of forward-looking professionals to help preserve archaeology and make human history more accessible and engaging; we educate communities to appreciate the world’s heritage, by using technology as the catalyst.
- Innovation: We are forward-looking and use the newest technologies to help preserve and engage with the oldest cultures.
- Empowerment: We provide skills, resources, and opportunity to empower individuals and communities to engage with their own history.
- Sustainability: We provide achievable and sustainable do-it-yourself (DIY) learning experiences to engage, preserve and share cultural heritage
- Multivocality: We value equally any cultural tradition, ethnicity, gender, place. All societies have left stories worth of preserving and sharing.
CoDA was founded by a group of faculty and researchers from UC Berkeley and was established as a California 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in April 2011. CoDA founders designed the company’s roadmap to provide archaeologists, memory institutions, and scholars the best and latest technological solutions and informed programs to take care of our cultural heritage.
Years of pioneering interest in digital media and technologies, unique expertise in teaching and curricular development, and collaborations with academic institutions, have brought CoDA to an international leadership role in digital archaeology, cultural heritage, and education.
