The Victoria and Albert Museum desired research regarding the concept of enhancing education through technology and the usefulness of handheld device applications in a museum setting. Previous studies suggested that mobile device applications enhanced learning. Our team used this research, surveys, and an educational benefit analysis and determined the effectiveness of the technology in educating visitors and their feelings on it. Our analyses demonstrated that participants' learning improved and they felt inclined towards expanding the technology throughout the museum.
