What Museums Can Teach Us about Usable Design: An Interactive Experience

Useful insights for designing an outstanding user experience in cyberspace can be learned from the successes of designing an effective visitor experience in the three-dimensional space of museums. This interactive activity provides an opportunity to learn how, by providing you with an opportunity to experience [The Baltimore Museum of Industry OR American Visionary Art Museum], then discuss ways to apply best museum design practices to other environments. A “Treasure Hunt” worksheet will help you focus on design issues and a debriefing afterwards provides a structured opportunity to identify and transfer lessons learned. by Saul Carliner New Approaches, Methods, or Technologies for Advanced Practitioners (AP)
