Demonstrations: Description

A low-budget virtual tour for school groups

Louise Cameron, St. Louis Art Museum, USA

We will demonstrate a low-budget project from the Saint Louis Art Museum and discuss its objectives and the process by which it came about. The Museum needed a twenty-first century solution to the challenge of preparing students for their museum visit; in addition we needed to reach out to rural students across Missouri who cannot visit in person. The virtual tour we produced is fairly low-tech and was quite low-budget. Although we used an outside vendor to do the programming, it would be possible for a savvy museum staff to produce something similar.
