SketchUp is 3D modelling software which can be used for a variety of drawing projects, including architecture, design, engineering, film and video game design. Dr. Matthew Nicholls, Senior Tutor at St. John's (formerly Professor of Classics at Reading), is a specialist in the reconstruction of ancient Roman buildings and urban spaces. Matthew has created the entirety of ancient Rome in SketchUp and used it for award-winning teaching research, and public outreach including broadcast documentaries and a MOOC bringing 3D reconstructions of Rome to 33000 people worldwide so far.
