Multimedia Design Research for the Museum Education Consortium's Museum Visitor's Prototype. Technical Report No. 24
REPORT

Abstract

This paper briefly describes the design and development of The Museum Visitor's Prototype, an interactive multimedia videodisk that was developed for the Museum Education Consortium. The consortium, which consists of the education departments of seven art museums, investigates the roles that technology might play in museum and art education, and seeks to provide more effective access to the arts. The prototype was created as part of a larger research effort to explore new discovery-based methods for introducing adult visitors with little or no background in art or art history to different ways of looking at and thinking about paintings. This report discusses the Museum Visitor's Prototype, key design and production issues, highlights of the formative research, and potential future developments in this area. (ALF)
