Using Digital Skills to enhance Content & Heritage Interpretation
On Wednesday 25th July, the Centre for Data Digitisation and Analysis in conjunction with the Living Legacies 1914-18 project, hosted volunteers from the HMS Caroline, as part of their Heritage Skills Academy. Twelve participants aged between 16 and 19, attended a one-day interactive training day at CDDA where they learned how to employ digital technologies and skills to enhance heritage interpretation and collections/archival content. Throughout the day, the volunteers were introduced to digital research skills, copyright issues, indexing digital content and using online resources. The afternoon session on the use of 3D technologies proved to be the most popular, especially creating and using hyper-photographs and Virtual Reality models. Fantastic feedback was returned on the day, showing the event was very successful. Some comments from the our participants included: ‘A truly enjoyable day; I look forward to testing out these learned skills’, ‘I learned about the new various ways technology can be used in museums which I hadn’t seen before’ and ‘very interesting and informative day…everyone was very passionate about their areas’.
