Session: Design Strategies (am)

This workshop will present an overview of different interface design strategies museums use to display and disseminate their information on the World Wide Web. A variety of museum Web sites will be chosen to illustrate the concepts such as: user-friendliness, interactivity, knowledge transfer, re-purposing of the content. The examples will be interpreted in light of current research findings in the area of cognitive science, human-computer interface design and social psychology. The goal of the workshop is to provide the participants with a resource list of practical examples of efficient design strategies for different target populations, and with guidelines how to modify these to suit the needs of their own institution.
