Abstract

Online exhibitions present an unexplored frontier in museum curation. The British Museum’s International Training Programme (ITP) has very few resources for training curators on how to create and maintain online exhibitions. Using first-hand experience, surveying ITP fellows and interviewing museum professionals, we used Wordpress to create an online exhibition and developed a detailed tutorial for the ITP fellows to create their own online exhibitions. We recommend the tutorial be tested and the iterative process is used when creating a website.
