Making Europe Virtual Exhibit - Dynamic Content

  1. 1. Leiden 29 Oct 2010 Inventing Europe Virtual Exhibit Dynamic Content Brian Fuchs Computing Imperial College
  2. 2. Dynamic Content = Content from other websites
  3. 3. Dynamic Content  Stays on your website  Selected by you  Changes when you change your website
  4. 4. Similarity Widget  Uses Rss ( Really Simple Syndication)  Works like an Rss reader, e.g. Google Reader  Scores items based on number of keywords supplied for each item.
  5. 5. Why Rss?  Gives people an easy way to find out what’s new on your website.  Used by millions ( )  Digitise once!  Collaborate!
  6. 6. Our Rss
  7. 7. A page with the similarity widget
  8. 8. Detail view with link to originator
  9. 9.  Originating Website
  10. 10. How it works….  We publish keywords for each page on our website.  A contributing Museum makes rss for our virtual exhibit and publishes it on a website (theirs or ours).  Museum gives us the url (link) to their rss feed for our virtual exhibit.  Our similarity widget on our website reads their rss feed and displays their images with a link back to their website.
  11. 11. Contributing: The Easy Way  Fill out a form on Googledocs  For each object you want to publicise:  Links to webpages and images on your site.  Keywords selected from a list supplied by the virtual exhibit.  We make an rss feed from this.  We publish the rss feed.
  12. 12. Contributing: The Hard Way  Talk to the IT person who runs your CMS  Is rss available?  Give IT guy a list of objects with  Links to web pages and images  Keywords selected from the virtual exhibit webpage.
