Virtual visits of museums (VISITOR)
VISITOR (VIrtual muSeums In The cOvid eRa) is an ongoing European collective project (2021-2023) funded under the framework of the Erasmus+ programme.
The first idea of the project was to deal with the prohibition of cultural visits to museums and other culture and science exhibition areas during the Covid- 19 travel restrictions.
The solution invented at that time was to integrate digitally in the school curricula digital simulations of museums as alternatives to onsite visits when geographical constraints or sanitary restrictions (like during Covid-19 pendemics) restricts or even prohibits on site cultural visits to museums and other culture and science exhibition areas
The purpose of the project is to foster students’ cultural awareness through a virtual educational process.
The objective is to fill in this gap through the effective use of:
a) a digital museum exhibits content aggregator and toolkit,
b) a digital application for virtual tours, exemplar use cases including citizen science and related resources
c) the appropriate training for the school community in order to unite the digital material made openly available by museums and virtual tours providing an Education and Entertainment solution (Edutainment) to school teachers to design novel structured learning experiences.
Five European partners are involved in the VISITOR project:
Interactive 4D (serious games editor, France, coordinator of the project)
Hellenic Open University (Greece)
The Open University (United Kingdom)
