The Museum of New Zealand Te Papa Tongarewa, located in Wellington, New Zealand, aimed to improve their online resources in order to create meaningful engagement with students and educators. By examining Te Papa’s current resources, evaluating the use of their Collections Online (CoL), and exploring other implemented museum models, we were able to understand the important aspects of a successful interactive pedagogical toolkit. We developed and presented potential models such that Te Papa may integrate these results into CoL, allowing greater accessibility to their resources and encouraging its effective use as an educational supplement.
