    • Interest in using mobile technology as an interpretation tool in museums is constantly growing, especially solutions that are delivered on visitors’ own devices
    • Proliferation of mobile platforms Museums
    • Proliferation of functionalities Handheld devices Web-access AV commentaries Gaming Wayfinding Bookmarking Twittering or texting Recording and annotating Taking pictures
    • Have all these new platforms and functionalities improved the visitor’s experience?
      • Development costs are high
      • Take up rates are often relatively low, especially when it comes to complex functionalities
      • Most wayfinding solutions that have been tested so far have proven unreliable.
      • There are often usability issues, especially with complex systems

    • Aren’t we trying to do to much?
    • Aren’t we forgetting about the core audio guide audience?
    • Are people interested in using their own devices?
    • Apparently…………………………NOT YET
      • Even though developing content and applications for visitors’ own devices could be the way of the future, in the short and medium term we should continue to provide solutions that can be rented out at the museum.
    • These solutions should be…………
      • Touch screen devices are easier to use
      • Simple interface without too much bells and whistles
      • Limit advanced functionalities
    • These solutions should be…………
      • Focus on the content: AV messages and Touch and Listen
      • Focus on helping visitors find the objects with commentaries rather then helping their overall orientation.
      • If you can, develop your content in such a way that it can easily made available on users’ own devices.
    • Importance of sharing and learning from best practice
    • Efforts
