To summarize our research in MEETeUX, we created a booklet to describe our learnings in the form of guidelines.Read more about Guideline Booklet
Workshop “Digitally Enhanced Museum Experience” on 27.11.2019
The half-day workshop deals with the use of digital artefacts to enhance museum experience. Invited international experts from the GLAM (Galleries, libraries, archives, museums) community will present their best practices and learnings regarding the use of 3D process chains, AR, VR and Audio. Additionally, we will present central findings of the national project MEETeUX, which is investigating the use of digital surfaces in museum exhibitions with a focus on integrating the visitors’ devices (BYOD – bring your own device).Read more about Workshop “Digitally Enhanced Museum Experience” on 27.11.2019
Fourth Advisory Board Meeting
After finishing implementing our use case in the museum of Klosterneuburg monastery, we decided to conduct our fourth advisory board meeting in Klosterneuburg. The goal was to gain insight about our interactive installation from our experts.Read more about Fourth Advisory Board Meeting
Open Source Github Repositories
Within MEETeUX, we develop our source code open source. The repositories are available on Github. Read more about Open Source Github Repositories
Third Advisory Board Meeting
We conducted our third advisory board meeting last week. Based on the motto “same procedure every meeting”, we met at the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences on Monday. This time, we wanted to create concrete ideas on real data and exhibition objects. Read more about Third Advisory Board Meeting
With the beginning of working package 3 (Client Side Concept), we started to generate ideas for the application phase of MEETeUX. Read more about Idea Document
Second Advisory Board Meeting
Last week our second advisory board meeting took place at the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences on Monday. The key topic of the meeting was to discuss the progress and future developments of the application phase. Read more about Second Advisory Board Meeting
During working package 2, we conducted a research about existing interactive applications in museums. Read more about Research Document
First Advisory Board Meeting
Last week our first advisory board meeting took place at the St. Pölten University of Applied Sciences on Thursday. The key topic of the meeting was to discuss the progress and future developments of the MEETeUX project. Read more about First Advisory Board Meeting
In semi-public spaces, tested interaction designs and user experience concepts are still lacking and make it difficult to apply the technologies easily, for the prospective integrated and for user’s beneficial usage of these devices. MEETeUX will make this possible by designing usage scenarios for the integration of various terminal devices, which shows the usage of multi-device ecologies in semi-public spaces. Therefore, MEETeUX concentrates on the integration of the user’s terminal devices (“Bring Your Own Device” (BYOD) usually smartphones) in consisting device ecologies. The usage of the own devices allows an adaption to the user’s special needs, thus improving the accessibility. In MEETeUX, selected scenarios, e.g. for the usage of knowledge transfer in a museum, will be implemented and evaluated for a user centered design approach.
