A.14 INFORMATIVE-TRAINING SESSIONS FOR MUSEUM OPERATORS
Two preliminary informative and training sessions are implemented to help museum operators to handle the activities of the project and interact with the ICTs. The partner in charge of the informative sessions is RIS Dvorec Rakičan.
The first online session took place on May 24th, 2021. The informative training was arranged by RIS that also provided the information material and the platform to attend the four hours lesson.
During this session the partners introduced to the other partners their respective Apps. The Apps take by surprise the visitors who get very good value for the cost of the ticket and are a great way of touring the collections in total freedom .
The partners have conceived MUS.NET. Apps in order to:
- explain about the project goals and give visibility to the Creative Europe Programme
- elicit different kinds of reactions from the visitors based on the senses, emotions and brain
- create statistical tools and collect data to profile the visitors and offer an increasingly tailormade experience
- offer different customized tours and upgrade them constantly
All Apps have satisfactorily passed the accessibility test performed by the project accessibility manager to ensure that visually impaired people may independently access the uploaded information.
Links to the Apps are as follows:
