DAM_SCOUT: A mobile experience platform at the Denver Art Museum
This presentation will be a demonstration of the capabilities of the DAM_SCOUT mobile application platform, developed in 2011 at the Denver Art Museum. Visitors to the demonstration will be taken through a number of the possible scenarios enabled by the platform, including traditional tours, sharing, long-term narratives, person-based content triggering, and others. Attendees will be able to download and use the mobile app as well as see a demonstration of the Content Management System being used to provide content to the app. Because DAM_SCOUT is a different type of mobile platform from the traditional tour-based experiences, the demonstration will be used as a jumping-off point to engage with attendees in discussions about how to expand, extend, and re-imagine the kinds of experiences visitors to museums can have.
