If you work developing exhibits for a museum, we need your help! We’re collecting data on museums and computer-based exhibit development for 2010. This is the third year in a row we’ve conducted an Open Exhibits survey and we’re hoping to build a solid body of quantitative data on how museums use computer-based exhibits, what they want from such exhibits, and what they see as the barriers to technical exhibit development.
Our earlier surveys shaped the Open Exhibits design and goals and we hope the results will be a starting point for other organizations and businesses interested in computer-based exhibit development and informal learning. We also plan to use this year’s data to further refine our software and community development as Open Exhibits progresses. We would like to ensure that we are creating a set of software tools that are helpful to a wide variety of museums and educational institutions, regardless of size, scope or budget.
