Open Exhibits has an active and formal research component that is part of our National Science Foundation grant. The National Center for Interactive Learning at the Space Science Institute is conducting the research for this project. This section of the site will grow significantly as our research findings are compiled and shared.
In the meantime, you can browse articles from a variety of sources in our Papers section. We encourage you to post papers on exhibit design, interaction and application design, research on technology, and white papers.
While Open Exhibits itself is a “grand experiment,” we occasionally will develop proof-of-concept applications as part of our research. Take a look at Heist, which focuses on technology to enable effortless networking.
