Abstract

The Worcester Art Museum is looking to deploy interpretive technologies within galleries to increase visitor engagement throughout the museum. Through interviewing, brainstorming, and collaboration with museum professionals, we decided the best course of action for this project was to implement a WAM Mobile Website with top features being an exhibit viewer, audio tours, and an interactive map. Implementation involved an iterative design process, learning three web development languages, and refinements to the website design. The project culminated in the mobile website, a promotional video, recommendations, and a set of guides to sustain the mobile website.
