Creating low-cost digital exhibits - making the most of what you've got

Abstract

IGOR (Interactive Galleries On Request) is a content development and deployment tool that enables museums to quickly and easily create four types of digital exhibit: touchscreen interactive, multi-video player, captioned slideshow and RSS viewer.

IGOR has been created with museums firmly in mind and is designed to enable museum staff to build their own exhibits, without recourse to expensive outsourcing. It brings digital exhibits within the reach of smaller museums - and allows larger museums to create simple, compelling exhibits for a fraction of the traditional cost, thus freeing up budgets for other, bigger, digital projects.

In this briefing, Digital Opportunities Director, Ian Smith - who has nearly 20 years experience in the heritage sector - will demonstrate how museums of all sizes can use IGOR to maximise their digital impact.

And for fun, Ian will use IGOR build a simple interactive from scratch in 15 minutes!
