This afternoon Paul Lacey and I conducted the first-ever Open Exhibits bootcamp at Museums and the Web Conference in Philadelphia! We led a group through the basics on Open Exhibits. We discussed how the software works and we showed some examples using both multitouch screens and the Microsoft Kinect. We hope to hold similar workshops in the future. PDF versions of the slides and links from the workshop are included here.
Museums and the Web is an annual conference exploring the social, cultural, design, technological, economic, and organizational issues of culture, science and heritage on-line.Taking an international perspective, MW reviews and analyzes the issues and impacts of networked cultural, natural and scientific heritage – wherever the network may reach.
