Not only has the advent of the internet created great shifts in academia but it is the evolution of digital humanities that has and continues to, alter the methods of communication amongst scholars. Digital humanities do not exist solely as theory but as a means of investigation, analysis and presentation of ideas in an electronic medium.

Its growing application in the university setting has generated a sense of community and enhanced the speed of information flow. Noteworthy success of digital humanities’ impact stems from the platform initiative known as Debates in the Digital Humanities. This served to provide scholars access to post their own work in addition to critiques of their peers. This peer-to-peer review enabled instantaneous information sharing while at the same time produced a collective sense of community for the project. This project confirms without a doubt digital humanities will prosper within the realm of academia and transition from practice to teaching.
