An Educational Multimedia Presentation Framework for Medium-Sized Museums
Styliaras, Georgios
Journal of Educational Multimedia and Hypermedia, v18 n3 p311-339 Jul 2009
This paper presents a framework that supports an educational presentation of a museum on fixed information and pure educational stations through multimedia. Museum curators are offered a wizard-like procedure through which they can structure and populate the content to be presented, associate the content to predefined application types that present it and configure the execution order of the applications. No technical expertise is required by the curators in order to complete this procedure. The framework has been applied and refined in 30 medium-sized museums in Greece. In the future, an evaluation of the framework is planned along with its application in more museums. Additionally, the framework will be expanded in order to support web site presentations and more tight communication with existing standards. (Contains 16 figures.)
