The #VXdesigners project partners will develop an “Exhibition Generator Platform”, which will be a tool for teachers and students with functionalities to create exhibitions.
The objective will be to design and curate during the project life time at least 30 virtual exhibitions, adapted to users’ needs, profile and interests.
The Exhibition Generator Platform will be an online collection management space, and offer an open-source database, with easy access to many museums’ online digital archives. The platform will assemble existing content and make it available for school students and teachers.
In addition, the platform will integrate interactive content and resources that users will be able to access and modify.
In practice, the platform will:
1) Allow teachers to assign tasks to a student or a group of students, to organise and create exhibitions and to reach specific learning goals.
2) Enable teachers to monitor the progress of their students and provide relevant material and guidelines to help them reach the set objectives.
3) Allow students to access resources, conduct research and collect material that will enable them to design, create and present their exhibitions virtually.
Users of the platform will have the possibility to configure an existing exhibition creation model in relation to a student / group of students (profile, level/age, duration, pedagogical objectives), but also duplicate and modify the contents of an exhibition or create a new one from scratch. The platform will be designed considering users with different learning needs.
